Reunions & Events

The Academical Dinner each November is our major annual gathering and we also organise a number of year-group reunions every term where alumni of The Glasgow Academy and Westbourne School for Girls can get together to catch up and reminisce. 

Supporting The Academy

Our multi award-winning Saunders Centre for Science and Food Technology is a fantastic addition to our campus. The creation of this first-class facility was made possible with the help and support of the entire Glasgow Academy community. We are hugely grateful to all who support The Academy’s vision and we greatly appreciate every gift, large or small.
