Welcome to Largs Academy


Welcome to the new Largs Campus. Largs Academy is part of a campus which includes Largs Primary, St Mary’s Primary and Largs Early Years Centre. Largs Academy is the secondary school which serves the town of Largs and the surrounding areas, the villages of Fairlie, Skelmorlie and the island of Cumbrae. There are four associated primary schools: Largs, Cumbrae, Fairlie and Skelmorlie Primaries. We also receive the majority of P7 pupils from St Mary’s Primary. In addition, there is a small inflow of pupils as a result of placing requests, producing a school roll just over 1000.

In the new campus we share dining facilities with other establishments, but our intervals and lunchtimes are at different times. Start and finish times are also different, to support the smooth running of the campus. We do envisage greater opportunities for working and learning together and the new environment has been designed with this in mind.

The secondary classrooms are housed in two main blocks at the rear of the campus. The block nearest the main entrance (South Block) has four floors, housing Reception (Floor 1), office, SMT, Guidance, Pupil Support, Medical Room and Staffroom (Floor 2), Science (Floor 3) and Maths (Floor 4). The North Block has five floors, including HE and Design and Technology (Floor 1), PE, Music and Drama (Floor 2), English (Floor 3), Social Subjects and Modern Languages (Floor 4) and Art and Design (Floor 5). There is also a large shared dining and learning space on two floors (upper and lower dining plazas). The PE halls, Learning Resource Centre (school library) and Performance Space (Assembly Hall) are accessed from the upper dining plaza.

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. The full report, now known as the Summarised of Inspection Findings (SIF), was published on Tuesday 4 April 2017, and is also accessible from the Education Scotland website.

We received an extremely positive report and I wish to thank all pupils, parents and staff for their continued support as we strive to improve outcomes for all our young people.  Education Scotland is very clear in its aim to raise standards in Scottish schools through a more rigorous inspection process, and we are among the first group of schools to experience this new inspection model.

The recognition that our school ethos is based on strong values and mutual respect is something I am very proud of. The evidence of very positive relationships between staff and pupils,  the increased opportunities for all pupils to develop and achieve success, and the recognition of the huge effort by staff to meet the needs of pupils is commendable.

 

We continue to develop strong partnerships within and beyond the local community and appreciate the contribution of parents, agencies and other partners.

 

This is a very proud day for the school community.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Mrs Heather Burns
