Parent Council

PAPA (Portlethen Academy Parents Association) would like to welcome you to this section of the website. We hope to update this area with information on dates of meeting, forth coming special events, information on how are fund raising is doing and to provide links to sites of interest.

Our main aim is to keep your informed on what we are doing and to get you involved. Portlethen Academy is an evolving and ever changing environment, the young people and the staff needs to know, and see, that we are supporting them in their aim of increasing the reputation of Portlethen Academy pupils in this area

Education is changing and sometimes it is hard to the see and understand what works with whom, to produce what. By taking the time to get involved this will give you an insight into how education system works and you can give your input, because it is important and matters that we do.

Everybody understands that we want the young people that we care for to do well and to achieve the best that they can be. However we would like to ask you to consider helping out on a wider basis and we will need help, with funding, with time, with expertise, with knowledge, or just a willingness to get involved, in what ever way you can. It can be as simple as stacking chairs or handing out flyers whatever help you can give would be a great help.

Portlethen Academy is our heart of this community and we need to build on that for the future of everyone. We should make everyone feel part of Portlethen Academy, and to make the local community feel part of the Academy.

Help us to do that and make a difference.


Meetings are usually held in the Academy Staffroom from 7pm. Further information is available from the Head Teacher.
