Welcome to the Junior School

People are what makes Kelvinside Academy special.

Every child deserves their school days to be magical. It is not enough that schools simply prepare the children for the challenges that lie ahead. Whilst this is vitally important, it comes as a result of happy, engaged and challenged pupils who throw themselves into everything that KA has to offer.

Having great facilities is wonderful, but it is having a teacher in the classroom who can engage and motivate each child that really makes the difference.

Every day children have the opportunity to indulge in new passions and interests, discover what they are brilliant at, and to learn how to overcome challenges, both inside and outside of the classroom. As a result, every child not only fulfils their potential but actually achieves above and beyond anything they ever thought they were capable of.

Our job, as educators, is to inspire the children, to bring wonder and intrigue into every lesson.

We are lucky to have amazing classroom facilities, a unique Innovation School, a fantastic Forest School location, small classes and the many resources that we do, but in the end it still comes down to our inspirational staff ensuring that your child receives an extraordinary education that challenges them greatly but also puts a smile on their face and gives them a million things to talk about when they get home.

I very much look forward to welcoming you to Junior School.

With very best wishes,

Clare Sweeney, Head of Junior School and Nursery
