An education for
mind, body and spirit

"School is where young people find out about themselves, about others and about the world."

Allan J Gilliland - Rector

Our goal is to inspire young people to be and do their best in every aspect of life. We help them grow into impressive young people who think for themselves and excel academically. Equally, we encourage them to enjoy physical activity, express themselves creatively and act responsibly and respectfully towards others.

THE BEST YOU CAN BE

Mind

Some learners excel in logical thinking and problem solving; some are practical learners; others think visually and creatively. Our key to unlocking individual potential is to know each boy and girl and to provide challenge and support for them all.

All pupils and teachers are using personal mobile devices to access the school's dedicated virtual learning environment and the educational resources of the web. Through online research, collaboration and communication, they are developing the skills they need for the 21st century.

Learning is a journey of personal discovery for every child. Through inspiring teaching, we encourage young people to ask questions and make connections, to think critically and imaginatively, and to reflect and evaluate.

By opening their minds, we encourage them to follow their own pathways to knowledge and truth, and to approach the world with curiosity and wonder.

Creativity plays a vital part in the education of the individual. The expressive arts flourish and contribute to the rich cultural life of the school.

Young people gain confidence through performance; they learn to explore their feelings and appreciate things of true beauty and lasting worth; they listen, observe and interpret their world in music, drama and art.

Students take part in a wide range of sports and physical exercise. These activities not only promote their health and well-being, they help them to develop leadership skills, learn about teamwork and enjoy a sense of achievement.

A great number of boys and girls represent the school in sport and our athletes regularly win selection at regional and national level.

Kelvinside Academy is an inclusive and caring community which values the individual for his or her unique contribution. Pastoral care underpins every aspect of school life and we work closely with parents and families to support the emotional well-being of every boy and girl. In building self-worth and a sense of belonging, we emphasise the importance of courtesy, kindness and concern for others.

We help young people to develop qualities of self-awareness, integrity and courage; we also encourage them to be socially aware and ready to help others, for example through direct involvement in community service activities.

At a personal level, young people need time and space for reflection. Educating the spirit, as well as the mind and body, helps them to be hopeful and thankful and to lead lives with meaning and purpose. Equally, we want boys and girls to learn with a sense of fun, playfulness and humour.

From Nursery to Senior School, outdoor education is an integral part of the curriculum at Kelvinside Academy. We want boys and girls to explore the natural world and to experience new challenges.

The mountains, lochs and coastline of Scotland offer opportunities for adventure and discovery. Many pursuits take place through the Combined Cadet Force and the Duke of Edinburgh's Award; the skills our young people learn help them to be disciplined, enterprising, resilient and adaptable.
