Unique Double for Academy

TWO teachers at Stranraer Academy achieved a unique double for the school last week when they both passed the Scottish Qualification for Headship programme.

Depute rectors Emma Neil and Mike Warren were two of 151 teachers from across Scotland to pass the intensive training programme, which prepares teachers for becoming head teachers.

And of all the teachers from Dumfries and Galloway who sat the course, Ms Neil and Mr Warren are the only two from the same school to actually achieve the mark.

Mr Warren, who teaches maths at the school, said:

"It's very unusual to have two teachers from the same school achieving this so it is good news for the Academy.

"It was a testing course but a very worthwhile one which is designed for people aiming to become head teachers."

The two teachers both sat the course at Stirling University and were presented with their awards by Education Minister Peter Peacock last Saturday.
