Welcome to Peterhead Academy

I count it an honour and privilege to be entrusted with this opportunity, to lead Peterhead Academy, as we continue on our “Journey of Excellence”, to see our pupils attain their full potential and be fully equipped for their future lives.

As part of Peterhead Community, my desire is for every pupil’s experience to be positive and encouraging, creating an atmosphere where they can contribute to both our school and the wider community.

Our website is designed to provide users with the very best information about Peterhead Academy with the different sections providing high quality information on; the curriculum, learning, the Parent Council and most importantly how you can contact the school for further information.

Our school vision, aims and plans provide information on the school’s strategic development whilst reports, questionnaire feedback and evaluations will not only enlighten us on our short, medium and long-term strengths and development needs but also ensure parents/carers and members of the global community are aware of our progress towards excellence.

I hope that you enjoy browsing our website and find the information and links useful.

Head Teacher (Acting)
