SQA exams

We send our best wishes to all senior pupils who have SQA exams over the next few weeks.  We are sure all the hard work over the year will support a successful outcome.

A reminder to senior pupils who are in school to study, they should be in full dress code as usual, sign in at reception and use the available study room (M6) or work in a department  if arranged with staff.  Any queries regarding the exam process, please see a member of senior staff.  This is also a good time to remind pupils to return any textbooks, course materials etc… once they are finished their exams.  This would be much appreciated and helps staff with resources for the new classes/timetable.

Pupils / road safety

Please see below a message from a member of the public yesterday (Thursday 26 April).

Unfortunately we don’t have details of who the specific pupils were but we please ask that parents remind pupils about  safety and responsible conduct when out and about.  Equally if anyone is able to identify who was involved in this, please contact the school.  It is a real concern that pupils are potentially putting themselves and others at risk of a serious accident.  Thank you for your support.

Comment: At 13.45 today 26/04/2018, I was driving past the local spar shop in Tradespark. A group of Academy students were crossing the road in a continuous stream regardless of traffic or roadworks. A cyclist, who was completely in the right, had to swerve to avoid them and they kept on crossing the road. The cylist came off his bike and slammed into the roadwork sign. I stopped the car, put on my emergency lights and went to help him. The most disconcerting action was of the group of girls who just laughed! Only one lad who wasn’t involved asked the cyclist if her was ok. This could have been so much worse if I had been just seconds before him. I would in all likelihood have hit one of the students. Please would you ensure your students are aware of crossing the road like that in future.
