What says..

Rector is bubbly, enthusiastic, fun, keen on teaching with the 'wow' factor and incredibly efficient. He is the only head who, when faced with a barrage of questions to which he did not instantly know the answer, left detailed answers for us to collect with the rest of the bumf from his office. Impressive. Spectacular art and stunning art room at the top of Colebrooke Terrace. Pottery, fabric and every conceivable discipline. Strong follow-through to art schools all over. Some of the most imaginative…

What the school says...

An interesting feature of The Academy is the fact that we have three Prep schools in different areas of Glasgow. We have two small schools for younger children (3-9 years) on the north - The Glasgow Academy, Milngavie - and the south - Dairsie in Newlands - of the city.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

What The Good Schools Guide says

Rector

Since 2005, Mr Peter Brodie MA (Oxon), PGCE (50s). Educated at Abingdon, with a masters in English from St John's, Oxford, followed by a PGCE at Oxford and a (later) masters in education management (part-time) at Canterbury Christ Church University College. 'A good intellectual training exercise,' he told us. He came from King’s Canterbury. ‘Let’s not talk about me, let’s talk about the school. I haven’t changed.' But boy, the school has ‘improved and moved forward.' An inspired appointment, he runs the school with a senior management team (OK, yawn, yawn) but Brodie spreads his net wide.
