Title WIP

Welcome to Portlethen Academy’s website.

Portlethen Academy is a comprehensive school of around 910 pupils, serving the catchment in and around the town of Portlethen, in Aberdeenshire (North-East of Scotland).

At Portlethen Academy, our vision ‘to be the best we can be’ is underpinned by our four values (Respect All, Learn and Improve, Get Involved and Think of the Consequences), which helps to generate engaged, knowledgeable, and motivated young people who are equipped with qualifications and skills for life, learning and work beyond school.

Portlethen Academy has a broadening curricular offer that enhances learning opportunities in a real-life and relevant context, and we are working on developing further links in and around our community that support skills development, pathways, and work-based experiences for our young people as part of the Exclerate programme with the Wood Foundation.

We take great pride in working with and for our local community, and enjoy collaborating with our partners and stakeholders to showcase the many talents of our young people.

We welcome the chance to work with you as parents and carers, members of the local community, partner primary schools and/or business partners to help improve and enhance opportunities for our pupils.

This website will provide an overview of Portlethen Academy, the work we are undertaking, our policies and procedures, key updates and successes.  It is continually being developed and updated, and will become your ‘one-stop’ location for all up to date information.   I hope you find it useful.
