Welcome to Kilsyth Academy
We've put together this site to enable parents, pupils and other members of the public to see some of what goes on in Kilsyth Academy.

Our news section is updated weekly, and copies of the school newsletters are also available.


Both S1 and senior enterprise classes have been working hard to produce a variety of products to sell. These include  candy canes,  decorated shoppers (which are ideal with the introduction of the 5p bag charge), decorated candles and sweet country jars. All of the products are skillfully made by pupils and are reasonably priced.
The pupils have been producing these items for the past few months and class representatives will be selling the products at the following events:
15 January – S3 Parents’ Evening, 5 February – S1 Parents’ Evening and 17 March – S2 Parents’ Evening.
We hope you’re able to come along and support us!

Our website is organised into three main sections -
- Departments
- Information for pupils
- Information for parents
