Larkhall Academy


Welcome to Larkhall Academy and thank you for taking an interest in our school.

Larkhall Academy is a large secondary school with a roll of just under 1200 pupils. We expect this number to increase significantly in the years ahead as a result of increased primary numbers and the ever-growing number of new houses in our catchment area. Our 9 associated primary schools (Glengowan, Machanhill, Stonehouse, Newfield, Craigbank, Robert Smillie Memorial, Hareleeshill, Netherburn and Dalserf) are linked closely to us through a very strong transition programme and this results in a smooth path to secondary school for our young people.

We have recently consulted on our new school vision, values and aims. Our vision is ‘To inspire and enable all our young people to flourish and fulfill their aspirations’ and our school values are kindness, togetherness and resilience. We hope that you see these reflected in your interaction with the school.

We value our strong relationships with parents & carers and with our community and we aim to maintain open lines of communication to ensure that our young people are fully supported and that any issues raised can be dealt with promptly. Contact details for key staff are on our website pages so please get in touch.

We are proud of our school and proud to celebrate the many achievements of our young people. You’ll find a flavour of these in our newsletters.

Best wishes


Andy Smith


Head Teacher
