Welcome to Larkhall Academy. As Headteacher it is my pleasure to introduce you to our school. I am continually impressed by the achievements and actions of our students and the aim of our website is to share these with our parents and carers, learning partners and the wider community.
We are the local school of Larkhall, a school with a current enrolment of over 1,100 students that strives to achieve excellence - we aim to provide a service that has the highest possible standards of care, traditional ‘family’ values, academic rigour and strong staff-student relationships. We aspire to be a school that stretches young people to aim as high as they can in life. Our wish for our students when they leave us and head into the wider world is that they have met their potential academically and that we have laid the foundations for them to be happy and successful in life by ensuring that they are well balanced and confident young people who are aware of what they can achieve in the future.
We have a high quality group of teaching and non teaching staff who will endeavour to make this vision come to life on a daily basis.
We are currently making excellent progress with Curriculum for Excellence and we are enjoying restructuring courses and assessments to improve the learning opportunities for our young people. In the coming months we will be taking great strides forwards with literacy, numeracy and personalised learning- and we look forward to working with students and parents/carers to deliver these to the highest possible standards.
Within these pages of our site you should be able to view images of our students being effective contributors, responsible citizens, successful learners and confident individuals, as well as reading of their many achievements in the most recent student bulletin. Faculties and departments have also provided information on their course content and how they are delivering a curriculum for excellence. Furthermore you will find copies of any recent letters issued to students, the school calendar for the year and our school improvement plan (SIP) that will give you an idea of what we are trying to put in place for our learners over the next year.
I hope that this website has given you a flavour of what our school is about - staff and students working together to ensure that our young people reach their potential and be all that they can be.
If you have any queries or would like any further information on the school and its services please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our site.
