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.
Mr Gordon Moulsdale, Head Teacher
The next meeting of the Parent Council will take place in the Conference Room on Tuesday 7th October at 6.30pm. This will be followed by the Parent Council AGM at 7.30pm in the Assembly Hall. All parents / carers are welcome to attend both or either meeting.
There are vacancies on the Parent Council and we are seeking nominations from the Parent Forum. A copy of the nomination form can be obtained by clicking here. Completed nomination forms should be returned to the School Office by 4.00pm on Monday 6th October 2014. This is an opportunity for parents to put forward their views and those of other parents and to support and advise the school on decisions affecting your child’s education within Bishopbriggs Academy.
Following the retiral of Mrs MacNab who was our Clerk to the Parent Council for many years, we are seeking to appoint a new Clerk. This involves attending each Parent Council meeting (seven per year) to take minutes and deal with paperwork relating to the PC such as agendas, Disclosure forms, nominations and attendance. A small remuneration is attached to this post. If interested, or you would like further information regarding this post, please contact Mr Moulsdale, Head Teacher via the School Office at email@example.com or telephone 0141 955 2351.
