Welcome to the Bishopbriggs Academy website

Bishopbriggs Academy Welcome Sign

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.

Youth and Philanthropy Initiative

This term our S6 pupils have been researching local charities who could benefit from winning £3000 from Youth and Philanthropy Initiative Scotland. YPI promotes a sense of responsibility, respect and a commitment to building compassionate communities. Pupils researched their chosen charities and gave presentations on why their nominated charity would benefit. The winning groups then went through to the Bishopbriggs Academy final on 5th December 2016.
 
The standard of presentations was extremely high and judges had a difficult decision to make.  However, following a superb and passionate presentation the winning group, comprising of Thomas Elvin, Ross Gill, Ross Gribben and Ross Gillies, secured the £3000 cheque for Cathleen’s Cabin.  Cathleen’s Cabin provides a holiday home in Dunoon which can be used to give enjoyment and respite to families and individuals who are experiencing ill health.  Many of those who benefit are referred through Rachel House Children’s Hospice in Kinross and Robin House Children’s Hospice in Balloch. Cathleen’s Cabin was founded by Maddie McCance in memory of her mother, Cathleen McCarthy who strongly believed in the benefits of a holiday for both an individual child and their whole family.  The charity has been hosting holidays for families since 2010.
