Based in the leafy suburbs in the Southside of Glasgow, TGA Newlands offers the distinctive Academy experience with the benefit of smaller class sizes and a close sense of community. We passionately believe that our children are at the centre of all learning and this permeates every aspect of life here at TGA Newlands.
From phonics to French, counting to computing and everything else in between, we nurture our children along the path of learning, helping them to establish a firm foundation for their later education. We foster a sense of ambition and resilience and the school's 'can do, will do' ethos is at the core of all we do.
Our children enjoy the advantages of wider Academy life, with specialist teachers for PE, Music and French as well as many opportunities to visit and work closely alongside our other sites. All of this ensures a smooth and happy transition into Prep 5 at Kelvinbridge.
The children are actively involved in our Rights Respecting and Eco initiatives; their views are sought and acted upon through our Pupil Council. Our Prep 4 class chooses a charity for the school to support each year, which is the catalyst for other stages to become involved in numerous enterprising events.
Surrounding all of this is the firm conviction that the partnership between child, teacher and parents allows our children to flourish, grow and to be the best they can be.
Come and visit us at TGA Newlands and see for yourself all of the exciting things that we are doing here.
Miss Hazel Logie, Head of The Glasgow Academy Newlands
