We use the Entrance Assessment as part of our selection criteria for admission to Year 8. If you wish your child to attend the Academy, it is important that the PPTC Entrance Assessment is undertaken.


Registration for Year 8 entry in September 2016 opened on Monday 18th May 2015 and closes on 25th September 2015 at 2.00pm.


Registration packs for current P6 pupils will be available at the end of May 2015 from both the Academy and the PPTC website.
