Welcome


I hope you find our website interesting and informative about our work with our young people and our community.  As a school we are on a journey of continual improvement and have high ambitions for all our students.  Our destination is to become a great school which means we are focusing on:

 

Higher Attainment

Broader Achievement

Deeper Learning

Wider Leadership

 

Learning is at the heart of the school and our mantra is ‘lessons are for learning’ with great emphasis placed on providing engaging learning experiences, focused intervention and good tracking of progress.  What happens in the classroom is key to the success of our students.  It is where we build knowledge, develop skills and promote positive attitudes to learning.  We have highly qualified staff who provide a supportive environment where every child is known and learning flourishes.  Our aspirations, expectations and commitment are high for all members of our school community.  It is a privilege to work alongside our young people who are hardworking, talented, innovative and positive about learning.   We welcome you to join us on our climb to success.

Charities Week

The school would like to make clear that our charities week was a success and that rumours of theft are untrue. We would also like to recognise that there were statements made by staff members in error that have led to such rumours, and also repeated these rumours, giving students and parents the false impression that such rumours were based on facts.

Staff at the Academy have recognised the mistakes made, for which we are truly sorry. We are working closely with parents and students to be sure that we avoid making such errors again. This message is issued to help the community get to the truth and help us all to stay true to our purpose of Together Creating Positive Futures.

This year, our Senior Students chose three charities: one local, one regional and one national. These were:

 

Willows Animal Sanctuary

 

The Archie Foundation

 

Multiple Sclerosis Scotland

We are proud of our industrious Seniors who managed to raise £2754.60!

Well done to all for their philanthropy!
