Navigate to success

 

 Our vision

Stromness Academy aims to be a positive and purposeful place, of which all in our community are proud to be part. We encourage all our pupils to take responsibility for their learning and to aim high. To support this, we provide a wide range of opportunities to inspire pupils to find their passion, make positive life choices and fulfil their potential – both in and out of the classroom.

We value Orkney’s unique location, culture and history, while promoting an understanding and awareness of the wider world. We aim to support all our young people to become confident and valued members of society who are responsible, respectful and resilient.

 

Our Curriculum Rationale – how we choose what and how we teach

We aim to inspire young people to want to learn, and equip them with the skills and self-motivation to do so effectively. Our curriculum provides breadth and depth, support and challenge. It is flexible to meet individual needs and allow personalisation and choice, along with a rigorous focus on the key areas of literacy, numeracy and health and wellbeing. We aim to prepare young people for modern life and work, in Orkney and beyond. Every pupil should leave us with skills, abilities and qualifications appropriate to their potential, enabling them to move on to a sustained positive destination.

Morning. Some of the school buses are running a bit late due to the terrible road conditions this morning. At the moment there is only one route that they haven’t been able to pick up pupils as it’s too dangerous. Stay safe! See MoreSee Less
