Alford Academy – an Ambitious School Community
I am delighted to be writing to you as the new Head Teacher of Alford Academy. The start of the new session has been very busy, and the staff, pupils and community have been very welcoming and friendly. I have met all of the pupils through assemblies, and I have been greeting pupils as they come into school and have visited many classes. It has been great to see all of our pupils arriving over the last few weeks and I hope that the S1’s and other new pupils are now becoming increasingly familiar with the school, just as I am.
Alford Academy is a very busy place with the school roll exceeding 700 pupils.
Alford Academy is a vibrant learning community, renowned for its care of, and ambition for, our young people. Our new home, which we moved into in October 2015, is providing us with wonderful new learning spaces and fantastic opportunities to work ever more closely with our campus partners to achieve even more for our young people.
What has not changed is our vision for our young people. Alford Academy recognises that one size does not fit all. Our young people are born individuals and should leave school as individuals. Alford Academy is committed to unlocking each youngster’s potential, raising their aspirations and helping them to be all they can be, in a safe, healthy and caring environment.
Senior leaders and school staff are committed to working together with pupils, parents, businesses and organisations to achieve the very best for each young person at Alford Academy. We believe that all our young people can succeed through hard work, and we place great value on the personal development of each young person, so that they are equipped with the skills, knowledge, resilience and drive to achieve in and beyond Alford Academy.
