Alford Academy Inspection
Alford Academy was due to be inspected from Monday 16 March 2020. On Friday 13 March 2020, Education Scotland informed us they are pausing all inspections until the Easter break. This is due to the changing situation with Covid-19 (Coronavirus) in Scotland.
We will update you when we receive notification of a rescheduled date.
The UK General Election 2019 takes place tomorrow, Thursday 12 December and we want you to take part. Come along to room D0-69 at break or lunch, meet pupils acting as representatives of the candidates and let them tell you all about their respective parties policies. It only takes 2 minutes to vote, we would love to hear what Alford Academy pupils think! #getinvolved #yourvotecounts

The library will also open tonight from 5:00pm – 8:00pm so please come along.

The half price Scholastic Book Fair is coming to Alford Academy Library next week – Tuesday 5th to Monday 11th December. Pupils will have the opportunity to browse and purchase half price books during their library period in English and during lunchtime. Pupils can buy a raffle to be in with a chance of winning a book voucher to be redeemed at the book fair and there will also be a competition. The librarian will also open the book shop on Thursday evening (7th December) from 5.00 – 8.00 p.m. for parents to come and do some Christmas shopping. Books suitable for primary 6 through to S6 age group.
If teachers are interested in some Christmas shopping you will get your books here for the same price (due to the ½ offer) as you would in the supermarket. The library will receive 10% commission to buy books for the library (that will stay here in Alford).
