Armadale Academy is a six-year comprehensive school that serves over 1100 students in the Armadale/Blackridge and Bathgate area. We offer the full range of National Qualifications found in a modern Scottish secondary school. The school has approximately 90 teaching staff and departments are organised under the direction of a Principal Teacher Curriculum responsible for each Curricular Area.

Armadale Academy offers the opportunity for all students to succeed. 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.

We aim to 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.   Our mission statement ‘Learning Together, Achieving Together’ underpins our collaborative approach to improvement where every voice is important and valued. The school values - ambition, achievement, positive attitude, community, respect and equity- underpin all decision making in the daily life of the school.

We are keen to employ a diverse workforce that reflects the people of Scotland. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and particularly from groups currently under-represented, including people with disabilities, those from minority ethnic communities or from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds
