Welcome to Perth Academy. Our school is one of the oldest in Scotland and it may come as a surprise to you that “A History of Perth Academy” was written and published in 1932. In 2012 we reached 80 years in our current building and pupils, former pupils, staff and former staff celebrated together over the course of a weekend in September.
Our school core purpose is defined as: A Caring Community, Inspiring Learning and Celebrating Success. Our school values are Fairness, Ambition and Respect. We hope that you will see all of the above in abundance, whatever your connection with Perth Academy.
