Headteacher Weekly Update 24/9/18 - 28/9/18

Well done to the Duke of Edinburgh pupils and staff. The pupils are working towards their Bronze accreditation and having a practice expedition to Ben Cleuch this weekend.

Parent Council Meeting 27/9/18

It was pleasing to see many Alloa Academy and St Mungo's RC Primary School parents come along to the Special Parent Council meeting on Thursday 27th Sept.

Parents came along to the meeting to hear an update on the issues which have lead to St Mungo's RC Primary being temporarily located in Alloa Academy. The meeting was chaired by Anne Pearson (Chief Education Officer) and was also attended by Educational Mangers and Local Councillors. Parents were given the chance to express their opinions and have their say on future decisions and plans.

Parent Councils, Headteachers and Educational Managers will continue to work in partnership to ensure the agreed actions are being worked upon and that the young people have a high standard education and care in both schools.

For more information, please see the letter sent to all parents on Friday 29/9/18.

Modern Languages

It is was nice to see the amount of effort that the Modern Langues team put into celebrating the European Day of Languages on 26th Sept. There were lots of fun activities throughout the day.

MacMillan Coffee Morning

Mrs Richardson and a team of pupils and staff were very busy this week planing a fantastic coffee (CAKE) morning. Over £300 was raised for the very deserving cause. Delicious and fun charity work!

National Ties

Our National Ties have arrived and the pupils who represent their country have the opportunity to share their success by wearing this special tie.

Below we have Kirsty McGauchrane who represents Scotland at Ice Skating and Sam Scobie who represents Scotland at Karate.

Well done.


Reading is something we value very highly in Alloa Academy.

It can have such a positive impact on our learners education and their well-being.

It is lovely to see the S1 pupils relishing our Bookbuzz project in the pictures above.

Pupils and parents, please keep up to date with all our Library and English work on the following links.



To support students in S3, Dr Adam (PT English) has developed a fantastic Padlet for reading recommendations.

Please click on the link below to see the great titles.


Padlets are a great way to communicate with our learners and school community. If any other faculty/club want me to share links, pleas email them to myself.

Celebrating Success EASN

Mr Bryce (Depute Headteacher) and myself had the pleasure of celebrating the success of our EASN students who have excelled in classroom activities and leadership.

You will see Alan delighted at being presented with his Prefect Blazer and Badge below.

I want to thank the staff for their ongoing support and it is a pleasure to have Miss Wheater (Depute Headteacher Lochies) support us improve experiences for young people over the coming weeks.


Congratulations to Mrs Thomson who has successfully appointed in to the Senior Management Team. Mrs Thomson moves from her Pupil Support Guidance role and she will now be supporting Alloa Academy staff and pupils target Positive Destinations, National Standardised Assessments and Attainment Outcomes.

Congratulations also go to Mrs Wilkes who joins the Pupils Support Guidance team to ensure our pupils are fully supported. Well done.


I hope you enjoy the week ahead and we wish the pupils and Staff going to New York all the very best.
