Thank you for your interest in Galashiels Academy.
Galashiels is renowned not just for its academic achievements, but for its thriving extra-curricular programmes including outdoor education, music, art and especially sport, where we have a remarkable level of student involvement at school, regional and national level and a long roll call of former students who have achieved international honours.
We are a comprehensive secondary school working to serve all of the children and families in our community and our success is founded on placing our students and staff at the heart of everything we do.
We offer a wonderful learning environment in the heart of the town, set in the estate of the former "New Gala House", and bounded by the beautiful "Galashiels Policies".
Our values are captured in our "Core Values" statement, and our aim is to help every child achieve to the very best of their abilities, developing as a successful learner, confident individual, effective contributor and responsible citizen.
As a school we reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the town of Galashiels. We welcome staff and pupils of all nationalities and backgrounds.
