We are very proud of our Academicals and are always keen to hear from you. Around 3000 former pupils are registered on our Academicals database a figure which is growing all the time as new pupils leave the school each year and as we renew contact with other Academicals through our widening channels of communication. The Kelvinside Academy experience lasts a lifetime and our Academicals are welcome to visit the school all year round.
We are delighted to help you reconnect with old school friends either directly or by attending regular events and reunions throughout the year.
If you wish to visit the school or would like to attend any of the following events please contact Elaine Solman, Development Manager or call 0141 357 3376 and speak to a member of the External Relations Department.
Reunions are a wonderful opportunity to catch up with old friends, share memories, tour the school and reminisce at Balgray. Lunch is then served in the Miller Drummond Suite in the new pavilion.
Business Breakfasts take place twice a year and are attended by Academicals and friends of Kelvinside Academy who have an interest in business and enterprise. Join us for a hearty breakfast, network with old and new friends and share your business experiences with like-minded people. To date Breakfast Speakers have included Colin Neill (1972), former Director at Diageo, Gareth Gaston (1992), Vice President, Virtual Banking of U.S. Bank, John Boyle, Entrepreneur and Peter C Brown, Former Scotland Rugby Captain.
The Annual Academical Dinner is a fantastic evening for former pupils from all over the globe to come together. This is held in the School with drinks in the Kennedy Mall and Dinner served in the main Sports Hall.
The Sporting Lunch takes place during the Autumn Term. This is a great day for watching the hockey and rugby culminating with good food, fine wine and excellent company. The perfect combination!
The Academical Weekend is a fantastic weekend of friendship, fun and family. These two wonderful days of reminiscing begin on the Friday evening with the Annual Dinner, attended this year by over 170 Academicals and then on the Saturday, the Annual Hockey and Rugby Matches take place at Balgray. After a morning of sporting excellence, fabulous fayre is enjoyed in the Miller Drummond Suite.
