Welcome to Largs Academy
Largs Academy serves the town of Largs and the surrounding areas, the villages of Fairlie, Skelmorlie and the island of Cumbrae. There are five associated primary schools. There is a small but regular net inflow of pupils as a result of placing requests producing a school roll stable at over 1000.
The teaching areas are housed in three buildings. The East and West buildings are joined by a link corridor, cloakroom areas, library/resources areas and IT suite. The main offices, Modern Languages, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physical Education, Biology, Religious Studies, Music and Pupil Support curricular areas are in the East building.
In the West building are situated an assembly hall, a small examination hall, medical rooms, dining area, Guidance suite, the Art and Design, English, Geography, History, Design Technology, Physics, Home Economics and additional Pupil Support curricular areas.
A purpose built IT facility is shared by Business Education, Computing and Mathematics.
Physical Education uses a range of indoor facilities, the adjacent playing fields and two astroturf pitches.
INSPECTION OF LARGS ACADEMY
To all parents and carers,
I am delighted to direct you to the letter prepared by HM Inspectors following the inspection of our school in January. This was released on 28 March 2017 and all pupils received a copy of the letter on that date. You can access the letter and inspection evidence (questionnaires) on the Education Scotland website at www.education.gov.scot. A full summary of inspection findings (SIF) will be published at a later date.
