WELCOME TO Kilsyth AcademY


Welcome to the web-site of Kilsyth Academy and thank you for visiting.  As Head Teacher, I feel privileged to lead our school to ensure we support and prepare our young people to succeed in a dynamic, fast paced and ever changing world.

Built upon three core values of Fairness, Ambition and Respect, and by embracing our motto 'Spe Expecto', 'I Look forward with Hope', everything we do in Kilsyth Academy is geared towards preparing our young people for the future, supporting them to develop essential knowledge and future skills that will allow them to thrive. We do this by ensuring fairness and equity for everyone within an aspirational culture that drives ambition. This, of course is underpinned by ensuring our community is built on a foundation of respect for each other and our environment and is supported by our dedicated and talented staff.  To learn more about our school values and what they mean to us please watch our video (Click Here).

Our school is at the heart of our community and brings together, in strong bonds of friendship and partnership, the town of Kilsyth and the surrounding villages. We are proud to serve the young people and families of Kilsyth and our surrounding villages in both North Lanarkshire and East Dunbartonshire and aim to provide our young people with a full and rich educational experience within a safe and nurturing environment that supports them to realise their potential.

I hope you find the site useful in providing you with information about the school and the many successes and achievements of our young people. If you require further information or clarification on any matter please do not hesitate to contact us.
