Welcome to the Alness Academy website. Our core values of Leadership, Aspiration and Compassion are at the heart of all that we do. Our dedicated staff are fully committed to maximising the attainment and achievement and improving the life chances of all of our young people.


We are very proud of our recent HMIe Inspection (March 2019) which commended the consistent high quality learning and teaching across the school. In addition, our 2019 SQA results were the strongest in many years, and we have greatly increased the percentage of pupils sitting 5 or 6 courses at Level 5 (Nat 5 equivalent) and Level 6 (Higher equivalent).


Our focus this year is to broaden the school curriculum and to provide further opportunities for the development of essential Skills for Learning, Life and Work. We are looking forward to the opening of our incredible new school building in the summer of 2020, which will provide our pupils with a state of the art learning environment.


Please follow our Facebook and Twitter accounts for information on the wide range of extra-curricular activities, student achievements and regular updates on events which are taking place within the school.


Kind regards


Catherine Brown

Acting Head Teacher
