From understanding comes strength



Banchory Academy has the support of a very active Parent Council. Membership of the Council consists of parents, who are always in a majority, staff and co-opted members.

The council meets approximately once a month and the members discuss a wide variety of matters relating to the school, including policy development, financial planning, staffing and pupil-related issues. Council members also play an important part in appointing senior members of staff.

We seek to represent as wide a range of parent views as possible, so please do get in touch.
