Hermitage Academy is a non-denominational secondary school in Helensburgh, Argyll and Bute, Scotland. It is one of two secondary schools in the Helensburgh area (the other being Lomond School) and is currently the largest secondary school in Argyll and Bute. Uniquely the school catchment area straddles the Highland Boundary Fault Line and can therefore be described as both a Lowland and a Highland school.
The school was originally located in East Argyle Street next to the current Primary School and later Hermitage Academy was built in the 1960s at Campbell Drive, Helensburgh, before being relocated to the new campus on the outskirts of the town in February 2008. The school badge features the main entrance of the original Hermitage School
The current school roll is 1500 pupils and approximately 90 teaching staff.
