We are very proud of our Academicals and are always keen to hear from you. Around 3000 former pupils are registered on our Academical 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.

Saturday Sport

We have a full calendar of fantastic events throughout the year and we would also be delighted to see you and your family at Balgray on a Saturday morning to support our pupils when they are playing Cricket, Hockey or Rugby. This is a great social occasion with our wonderful PTA supplying breakfast rolls and hot drinks in the Miller Drummond Suite.


We are also delighted to help you reconnect with old school friends either directly or by attending regular events throughout the year or our Reunions planned for the day of the Academical Dinner. These events are a wonderful opportunity to catch up with old friends, share memories, tour the School and reminisce about glory days on the “Field of Dreams” or on the Hockey pitch.

Business Breakfasts

Our 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.
