Welcome to the website for St Machar Academy

Welcome to the website for St Machar Academy, our brand new digital resource for the whole school community. This website is designed to help you with information on all aspects of the school.


As the recently appointed Head teacher I am delighted to be part of St Machar Academy community and I look forward to playing my part in the continuing journey of the school in ensuring that pupils are well prepared for lifelong learning. School has a major role to play in a young person’s development, but it can’t work in isolation. We need to work with parents/carers and the pupils themselves to ensure that we can deliver for our young people everything which is expected of them in becoming Successful Learners, Confident Individuals, Responsible Citizens and Effective Contributors: phrases which are well-recognised as the cornerstones for a Curriculum for Excellence, but which embody all the life skills that we would wish for our young people.


I encourage you to become fully involved in the life and work of our Academy and to make the most of the opportunities available. This website is intended to provide you with important reference information on St Machar Academy. It supports an extensive programme for all members of the school’s local and extended community to enable all of us to develop our own unique talents, so that we may all be the best we can be.


We hope this new resource will provide useful to our school community and invite you to let us know how we might improve it in the future.
