Welcome

Welcome to the Alloa Academy web-site. This site has an enormous amount of information for pupils, parents and staff and I would urge you to spend time searching through all the nooks and crannies of the site to enable you to benefit from its potential. There is curricular support for pupils, many links for parental support, substantial amounts of information about the school and curricular support for staff as well. The site will be updated continually, but if you feel the site can be improved in any way, please feel free to contact the school with your suggestions.

Happy Summer

 

SQA Exam Results

 

You will receive your Scottish Qualifications Certificate (SQC) by first class mail on TUESDAY 5 AUGUST 2014.

 

If you change your permanent home address, tell your school or college immediately. This will ensure that your SQC is delivered directly to your home, and avoids confusion or delays.

 

If you are going on to university or college, we will send your results to the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) electronically.

 

If you are returning for the new session, we will send results information to your school or college so that there is plenty of time for teachers to plan next year’s timetables and give you career and course guidance.

 

If your SQC does not arrive on TUESDAY 5 AUGUST please contact your school or college immediately. The school or college will be able to confirm your results and liaise with us to find out what has happened to your SQC.

 

TUESDAY 5 AUGUST

Mrs Ebsworth and Mrs Thomson will be in the school from 10am - 2pm to support pupils with any concerns or questions regarding their exam results.

 

THURSDAY 7 AUGUST

Your results may have an impact on your current course choices. There will be an opportunity for you to discuss this with Guidance staff and SMT in school on THURSDAY 7 AUGUST between 10am and 2pm.

Please phone or call into the school to make an appointment.
