P7 Questions


Our Junior Awards Ceremony is taking place on Tues 20th June 2016 at 7pm in the School Assembly Hall.  We have a large number of pupils who are being recognised for their achievements throughout the school year at this event.

As a consequence of the physical limitations of the assembly hall we could only invite a limited number of parents and family. However I would publicly like to recognise all of our award winners and all of those young people who have not managed to win an award but have nonetheless tried their best and supported us as a school.

Those pupils who were nominated but did not meet the criteria for attendance at the Awards evening will receive their certificates during Special assemblies which will take place on Wed 21st June throughout the school day.

The criteria for our awards is as follows:

S1 Pupils 3 + nominations


S2 Pupils 3+ nominations


S3 Pupils 2+ nominations



We will publish all award winners on the website in the near future.

Cumbernauld Academy Bus Turning Circle

Yesterday morning we had an incident in the car park that led to a first year girl being injured while alighting from her mother’s car shortly before the start of the school day. Thankfully, she was not seriously injured but could easily have been.

In 2015 I issued advice to parents about the car park and safety of young people therein.

S6 Graduation Ceremony 2017 – Wednesday May 31st

Cumbernauld Academy will be hosting their Sixth Year Graduation Ceremony on Wednesday 31st May. This is an opportunity to celebrate the success of our pupil’s time at school and to recognise their effort, hard work and contribution to the community of Cumbernauld Academy.

The ceremony begins at 7pm in the school assembly hall. This will be followed by refreshments and an informal time to chat.

All S6 pupils have already been issued with a letter inviting them to the event, we would however appreciate if pupils could return the tear of slip which formed part of the original invite well in advance of next Wednesday. This would allow us to confirm numbers and catering for the event.


S2 CEM Assessment

As part of the Scottish Government Attainment Challenge in North Lanarkshire, Cumbernauld Academy will be administering an adaptive, online assessment covering aspects of learning in literacy and numeracy for all children at S2 from the 8th May.

These assessments are designed to support your child’s learning and contribute additional information on your child’s progress. Information from the assessments will also assist the school in communicating to you the progress of your child within next session’s arrangements.
