Please note that the Primary 7 Open Evening is on Wednesday 13 September 2017, and not the previous week as the calendar on the website briefly suggested. Apologies for this inconvenience.
We have been blessed with the weather, again this week, which has encouraged Outdoor Learning through leadership, exploring the environment and interaction with the community. On this matter please ensure all pupils have a waterproof coat every day. If there is a spare jacket or welly boots you could donate to school that would be fantastic too: the weather will not deter us!
Read more about the fun that we have had in this week's newsletter.
We have been so lucky to have had warm dry weather for most of this week which has further encouraged development of outdoor play and learning. Find out more in our latest newsletter.
SQA provides a Return of External Assessment Materials service to return non-exam materials to you upon request. They understand that the coursework sent by Knox Academy as part of your course assessment might be of special value to you and your recordings, artwork or written pieces might not be easy to re-create.
For further details of how to request return of your materials visit the SQA Website - there is a charge from the SQA for this service.
Pupils who are currently studying for SQA examinations will find information available on the SQA's Your Exams 2018 website useful.
You can build a personal exam timetable directly on the SQA website or download the 2018 SQA Exam Timetable (PDF). 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 closer to the examination date.
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 the SQA hold for you and if you're sitting exams you can get your results sent by email and text message.
Guidance on Coursework is also provided, including information on how to have your coursework materials returned to you from a previous examination diet.
There are a range of extra-curricular activities available on offer at Knox Academy. Speak to your teachers, and keep an eye out in The Bulletin for activities which match your interests, skills, or ambition to try something new!
You can also start your studies with support from members of staff early in the session. A number of revision classes are run each year. Speak with your teachers to find out what extra support is available to assist you in achieving your goals.
Details of sporting activities can be found in the most recent Sports Timetable (August 2017). A timetable of other activities will follow soon.
Knox Academy is pleased to invite applications for the following vacancy:
