Alloa Academy makes use of social media (Twitter) to communicate with the learning community. We also have a school app.

In Alloa Academy we are extremely proud of our young people and our local community.  Building positive relationships is at the heart of everything we do here in Alloa.

We are fully committed to ensure that every young person receives the very best learning experience and we constantly self-evaluate, innovate and look for new ideas to improve.

We share the success of our school and our young people in a variety of ways from awards nights, coloured ties, Twitter updates and merits.

I look forward to working in partnership with you and if you require any further information or support, please get in touch.

Kind Regards

Colin Bruce – Headteacher
