Aim High!"The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it", declared the Italian artistic genius Michelangelo, "but that it is too low and we reach it".

Springburn Academy is a school where pupils and teachers never aim too low. It is a major quality indicator of the school’s success that it is a happy place to grow and prosper!

The English department uses a wide variety of teaching approaches, including ICT, to motivate pupils and encourage independent thinking. There are regular opportunities for pupils to present their work to their peers. Tasks and activities are matched well to pupils’ learning styles and pupils are encouraged to study a range of texts, including both classic and modern writers.
