Welcome to the Bishopbriggs Academy website
It is my great pleasure to welcome parents, prospective parents and all other visitors to our website. We hope that it gives you a comprehensive insight into many different aspects of life at Bishopbriggs Academy.
We have the highest standards and expectations of ourselves and each other. Our staff are extremely talented, dedicated and professional and that, allied to the various ways in which we focus on maximising academic attainment, has seen Bishopbriggs Academy establish a very strong reputation as a highly performing school.
We are absolutely committed to providing the widest range of opportunities for our young people to experience and enjoy success. Furthermore, we place great importance on celebrating that success and we do so in a wide variety of ways.
The school enjoys very positive relations with our parents, our community, local organisations and businesses and we hope that the accessibility of information on our website will help to strengthen our partnerships even more.
