SQA Exams Thursday April 25th – Friday 31st May

Study leave begins on Thursday 25th of April. This means that the last day of timetable for senior phase pupils undertaking exams will be Wednesday 24th April.

In addition a timetable of study classes will be issued to senior pupils prior to the start of study leave should they wish to undertake revision in school during this time.

Can we take this opportunity to wish all our pupils every success in their up-coming exams and commend them for all their hard work and effort over this past year.

Please note the new Sixth Year induction day will be Friday 31st of May. The new S5 pupils will return to school along with S6 pupils the following Monday June 4th.

Cumbernauld Academy Option Planning – Session 2019/20

Cumbernauld Academy pupils from S2 through to S5 are currently engaged with the process of investigating, planning and choosing their subject courses for next session.

The option interview process began with S3 pupils on Monday 18th February, to be followed next week with S4/5 pupils before our S2 pupils engage with the process from Monday 11th March.

In order for parents/guardians to fully support their child with this important decision making process we have attached option forms for all year groups. Option information booklets for the relevant years have also been added.

In addition to this school based information we have provided a link to the prospectuses for S5/6 Foundation Apprenticeship courses and Vocational courses delivered in partnership with New College Lanarkshire.
