Kilsyth Academy News – 18/08/17

We are delighted to welcome our new S1 pupils to the Academy and wish them all every success in the years to come. They are all looking extremely smart and have made a very enthusiastic start to High School life. Well done to pupils from last session’s S4, S5 and S6 on their excellent achievements in SQA examinations. We are very pleased with the results and it is clear that pupils’ and teachers’ hard work really paid off, once again.


Last year’s leavers are now embarking on either new courses in Further or Higher Education, or on new careers and we wish them every success. We look forward to hearing about their continued achievements, in the years ahead. A number of former pupils also graduated over the summer and our warmest congratulations go to them.


New Staff

We are pleased to welcome a number of new staff: Miss Graham (Biology), Miss McGavin (Geography), Miss Pollock (English), and we look forward to welcoming soon Mrs Keddie (P.E.).  We also look forward to welcoming our new Depute Head Teacher, Mrs Kay, who will also teach in the Technical department, to the school in the coming weeks. We hope that they will all greatly enjoy their time in Kilsyth Academy.



Our congratulations go to Cameron McCaffer (S2), who has recently left Cumbernauld Colts to sign as a pro-youth academy player with Partick Thistle Football Club.  We wish Callum the very best success in this move.
