 Primary Open Evening
Our annual open information evening for pupils and parents in P5, 6 & 7 from our cluster primary schools will take place on Tuesday 1 October 2019 from 6.30pm.  This is a great opportunity for future pupils and parents to visit the school, find out more about us and explore our facilities, meeting teachers and current pupils.  This is a very popular event and we hope to see as many future Kilsyth Academy pupils as possible.  Further information will be available on our web-site and issued to parents by our cluster primary schools.
