The excellent facilities available, allied to commitment of our staff, allow us to offer all of our students the highest possible standard of education in a safe, caring and stimulating environment - an environment in which all members of the school community are valued and their achievements recognised.
Armadale Academy recognises that the curriculum is not only ‘what’ students learn but also ‘how’ they learn. We place an emphasis on the student experience and seek flexibility to ensure that students achieve success in examinations and through personal achievement pathways.
The school has 73 teaching staff and departments are organised under the direction of a Principal Teacher Curriculum responsible for each Curricular Area.
You would work in partnership with all stakeholders within Armadale Academy to ensure a high quality student experience that reflects curricular design principles and student entitlements with the ultimate aim of maximised achievement and attainment for all.
