Pupils who are currently studying for SQA examinations will find information available on the SQA's Your Exams 2016 website useful.

You can build a personal exam timetable directly on the SQA website or download the 2016 SQA Exam Timetable (PDF) or in an editable format (Excel).  The SQA allows schools to change the start times of exams slightly (if necessary), so you should double-check the times of your examinations with your teachers.

Pupils may also be interested in signing up for the MySQA service which is your direct link with SQA. It lets you view your qualification information, check the personal details we hold for you and if you're sitting exams you can get your results sent by email and text message.

As you may be aware, Knox Academy now has a new Wifi network, which pupils, staff and visitors can access to aid and support their learning. This Connected Learning Network has been set up to allow pupils, staff and guests to bring their own device to school. This may be a smart phone, tablet or laptop to help them access on line resources and tools to transform the learning environment. It is now the expectation of Education Scotland that learners have access to and effectively use digital technology in the classroom to enhance learning. The school believes this network will effectively support this expectation. 


Further informaiton can be found regarding launch of the network in these documents:
