Our School

Welcome to Rosshall Academy

As the Head Teacher of Rosshall Academy, I’m delighted to introduce you to our school. Rosshall Academy is an exciting, welcoming school: a positive influence in the community with a commitment to delivering the highest standards in every aspect of all we offer. We welcomed our first students in August 2002 and are proud of the academic, social and personal achievements of all young people since. Our vision is that ‘all learners will maximise their potential, aspiring to excellence, in a climate of equality, integrity and respect.’

Our Curriculum for Excellence provides pupils with the skills for learning, life and work, not only delivered in the classroom, but enhanced by many high quality extra-curricular and community opportunities and events. The success of this is due to: Our talented, committed and creative staff

 Our ethos of achievement and high aspirations.
 Our commitment to promoting the highest standards of behaviour in class, in school and in the community.
 The active involvement of parents and carers in supporting every stage of your child’s education.

We also involve pupils in the running of the school, encouraging respect, responsibility, self-discipline and genuine compassion for others. I am ambitious for our school and truly believe that with an effective, positive, three way partnership, we can ensure the successful achievement of all of our aims and the highest outcomes for all of our learners. We will work with you to strengthen this partnership throughout your child’s education at Rosshall Academy and look forward to your ideas as to how we can improve this.

In the meantime, I look forward to meeting both you and your child throughout the coming months as we prepare for their transition to secondary education.
