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.

Some of our senior pupils have been working hard to produce the first edition of the school newspaper - The Bishy Blether. Click on the link below to view their work.
As the Summer holidays draw closer, many children will be spending more time than they usually do using their smartphones, tablets and laptops. While this "smart" technology gives children and young people access to new and exciting ways of communicating with each other, it can also present adults with the challenge of keeping abreast of developments on social media and making sure that their children are safe online.
The charity, respectme, is offering FREE practical Online Safety Training for adults within the Glasgow area during July and August. The training will run from 10.00am - 12.00pm. The training is designed to increase adults' awareness of bullying and the other risks and challenges children and young people face online. This training includes a practical, hands-on session, which will take you through the process for setting and managing profiles and privacy settings on social media channels such as Facebook and Instagram, to help ensure children and young people's online safety.To find out more and reserve a space using our online booking system, please visit www.respectme.org.uk
Staff will be available at the times listed in the attached letter to support pupils in preparation for exams which are timetabled towards the end of the SQA diet. We are conscious pupils involved in these subjects will have had no contact with a member of staff for several weeks so this will provide them with the opportunity to access additional exam support prior to the exam taking place. I would strongly encourage you to advise your son/daughter to come in to school and take up this offer of extra support if they are doing one of the subjects listed. Your son/daughter should be aware of these dates and times already as departments shared this information prior to exam leave.
Subjects offering additional study classes are:
Art, History, RMPS, Design and Manufacture, Health and Food Technology, Business, Computing Science, Drama, Modern Studies, German and PE.
