About Forfar Academy
Forfar Academy is a six year comprehensive school with a current role of just over 1000 pupils. The school forms part of a community campus providing an excellent environment for the whole community to learn and play. The school serves an extensive and relatively diverse catchment area which includes our cluster primary schools of Langlands, Strathmore, Whitehills, Letham, Aberlemno, Inverarity, Tealing, and Strathmartine. The school has strong relationships with our cluster Primary schools and a well embedded transition programme.
Positive relationships and a focus on the individual student are strengths of the school. This emphasis ensures high quality pastoral support and an approach to learning and teaching with a focus on supporting individual students to fulfil their potential and we aim to provide a high quality and consistently strong learning experience across the school.
Schools will always be about supporting the whole child and we are committed to all aspects of personal and social development and student welfare. This is emphasised in our school vision and values and is reinforced by our constant work on developing good quality relationships throughout the school.
Establishing an ethos where everyone is valued and respected and where strengths are recognised and encouraged to flourish remain fundamental to our ways of working as we strive to prepare our students for an ever-changing future. We are as ambitious for our students as the new campus building is for our local community.
