Welcome to the Douglas-Ewart High School website. My name is Alex Cowie and I am privileged to be the Head Teacher of this school community set in the beautiful Southern Machars of South West Scotland. I am proud of the school and its innovative approach to Curriculum for Excellence which reflects a true partnership with the extended school community in a common aim – to meet the needs of all learners.
The Douglas-Ewart High School is a rural school serving the town of Newton Stewart and the surrounding villages of the Southern Machars. The school is close to the main road transport route, the A75, and to the ferry terminal for Belfast at Cairnryan.
