Breadalbane Academy, located in the scenic town of Aberfeldy, towered over by the Highland Perthshire mountains, has one of the most spectacular school settings in the UK. Its location makes it an ideal gateway to the ScottishHighlands, despite being just over 30 minutes commute from the City of Perth. Perth in turn has excellent motorway and rail links to Edinburgh and Glasgow, which can each be accessed in about one hour.
The Academy has a long and distinguished history, dating back to the 19th Century, which is complemented by our current high levels of attainment and achievement. We are an all-through school, catering for pupils from age 2 to 18, with a very wide catchment, from the stunning wilderness of Rannoch moor in the west to the bustling towns of Dunkeld and Pitlochry in the east.
The school also has a Gaelic Medium provision in the primary which will extend into the secondary in session 2018/19 and we therefore welcome applications from Gaelic speakers.
In our most recent HMIE inspection the school was grading 'very good' in three out of five categories and 'good' in the remaining two. The school was particularly praised for its positive ethos underpinned by excellent staff-pupil relationships. These attributes were again picked up by a recent Nursery inspection (February 2017), which praised our nurturing environment and quality of leadership.
Our state of the art Community Campus opened in December 2010 and provides an exceptional learning and working environment for pupils and staff, making ours one of the best equipped schools in Scotland.
Our facility boasts a 25m swimming pool, an all-weather astroturf playing surface, a recording studio, a dance studio, and excellent ICT resources, which have recently been boosted by a considerable investment in hardware and software.
We are seeking a highly motivated professional to join our successful Art and Design department as and Art and Design Teacher and contribute to maintaining the school's high standards at department and whole school level.
