Annan Academy

Salary: £32,994 - £41,412

Annan Academy is a 6 year comprehensive Secondary school situated in the town of Annan within the region of Dumfries & Galloway in the south west of Scotland. It has a role of approximately 850 pupils. Annan has eleven cluster primary schools which are: Carrutherstown, Cummertrees, Eastriggs, Elmvale, Gretna, Hecklegirth, Newington, Springfield and St Columbus, Kirkpatrick Fleming and Brydekirk.

Visitors to the Academy will notice that while most of the school buildings are modern, there is a part which dates back further. The old building incorporating the bell-tower dates back over a century to 1895. This is a constant reminder of the school’s history and its origins. Recent refurbishment has created an enhanced learning environment for staff and pupils. A leading example of this is the new Performing Arts building situated towards the rear of the school.

At Annan Academy we have a hardworking, dedicated and passionate staff who deliver the curriculum in an innovative and engaging manner. In order for this to be achieved pupils at Annan Academy are expected to give their best in all facets of their education. The school has a uniform policy which all pupils must adhere to; shirt, tie, black trousers/skirt/dress, black footwear.

As a school we offer a vibrant extra-curricular programme to all pupils providing them with the necessary skills to be successful in their chosen career path. Highlights of this include a number of educationally relevant excursions, the opportunity to be involved in a variety of sporting teams and the production of junior and senior shows. We look forward to involving community partners, parents and pupils, both past and present in the achievements and successes of our young people.

Our Council’s vision is to make Dumfries and Galloway the best place in Scotland to live, learn, work, visit and grow. Our Education and Learning Directorate contributes to this vision because it is as unique as the area itself. We are proud of our rich mix of schools - large and small, urban and rural, partnership and all-through. Our purpose is clear and simple – to increase achievement, attainment and participation for all young people 2-18 by maximising the opportunity for our staff to develop and innovate through collaborative working.

We believe in developing the autonomy of schools, Headteachers and their staff to facilitate the highest quality learning and teaching. We continue to use our resources in innovative ways to ensure we build on our investment in staff and their practice and this is reflected in continued improvements to attainment, achievement and participation.

We are committed to our teachers, evidenced by the provision of high quality professional learning opportunities for all.

Dumfries and Galloway provides opportunities to enjoy a rich and diverse quality of life for singles, couples and families in this magical corner of Scotland; the experiences on offer are as varied as the stunning landscape.
