Academic Life

The curriculum at Strabane Academy provides stimulation and challenge to pupils of all ability, successfully combining both the traditional academic and vocational subjects to ensure all our pupils thrive. Our aim is to empower our pupils to achieve their best by enabling them to develop as individuals and as contributors to society, the economy and the environment. Our curricular provision offers progression across all key stages and leads to academic success. From the earliest possible opportunity in Year 8 support is given to pupils to help them learn and discover how they learn best as individuals! Embedded in every year group and in every subject are assessments which have been designed by subject specialists to track pupils’ progress at key dates throughout the school year. This information is collated and parents are informed of the results. This enables the school to work effectively alongside parents to intervene quickly where additional support is required and individual strategies are put in place for improvement.
