Mearns Academy

Mearns Academy is a secondary school in south Aberdeenshire, Scotland serving Laurencekirk and the surrounding areas (St. Cyrus, Marykirk, Fettercairn, Auchenblae, Luthermuir, Edzell Woods, Fordoun and Edzell). The school building was the former primary school before it moved and now has over 600 pupils. Currently, plans are being drawn for a new school as the conditions have been seen as unacceptable to councils. A plan includes the school to be built in the current playing field. The current rector is Mr Ian Parkin, who took over in late 2007 from Gordon Miller who is now Rector at Blairgowrie Academy. Despite the poor facilities at the school, it is known to have a good reputation in the area as having well behaved and respected pupils.[citation needed] The school has sports teams that compete in rugby, football (boys and girls), netball, cross country running and volleyball. The school's House System has three houses: Thornton, Johnston and Conveth .

Awards

In 2003, the school was awarded the Charter Mark.[1] In 2010, the school was awarded the Customer Service Excellence Standard
