About Our School

Dens Road School was built in 1911 for pupils of the Hilltown and Stobswell area. It is a purpose built school but has undergone updating over the years to meet the needs of the 21st century. We have recently celebrated our centenary year with lots of celebrations. 


We are a large school which has a school role of 250 pupils. It also has a nursery class with a role of 60 pupils.

It is situated on Dens Road but is in close proximity of the city’s two football clubs, Dundee FC and Dundee United FC. We are very close to Radio Tay studios. Vision Statement Dens Road Primary School strives to serve, and be an integral part, of the local community. As such we aim to provide a happy, welcoming environment for all members of the community irrespective of race, culture, religion and ability. The school values every individual and seeks to provide effective teaching and learning, working in partnership to maximise opportunities and equip our children for the future.


At Dens Road Primary School we respect everybody’s right to be happy and healthy by providing a nurturing and caring environment.
