Stranraer Academy Recommended

MORE THAN four out of five people would recommend Stranraer Academy as a school, a survey has revealed.

And the figures have prompted the head one of the biggest organisations in the town to describe them as 'tremendous'.

Between 86 and 87 per cent the public who responded to the millennium survey backed the school. Alan Gordon, Stena Line Route Director, who turned the raw data into tables, spoke of the high level as tremendous, adding "I think it is a positive message".

Plans to survey both parents and the local community followed an HM Inspectors' report early last year.

From it sprang an action plan and a feedback group was recruited to plan the survey. Results of the first two of the six surveys to be undertaken were revealed to the Academy's senior management team on Thursday.

Fewer than one in 10 parents thought the overall impression of the Academy was poor and more than 80 per cent of the public at large thought the school was either very good, good or average with 14 per cent recording a 'poor' impression and three per cent 'very poor'.

A large majority of both parents and the public also gave facilities and school buildings a vote of confidence.
