Barista Skills

Last week the Barista Skills class completed their ‘takeover’ of Kings Café.  They all successfully served the general public in a professional setting, making a variety of coffees and smoothies.  The class all represented the school brilliantly and it was wonderful to see the students demonstrating the skills they have learnt in a café environment.

A squad from Culloden Academy are recently back from a fabulous trip to Aviemore where 17 of our pupils joined several schools from all over Scotland to take part in the Camanachd Shinty Festival. It was a wonderful experience for all pupils and staff. Many thanks to the Camanachd Shinty Association, and also the Macdonald Hotel who accommodated a small group of our pupils for the event.

Reading School

We are delighted to announce that we are a Scottish Book Trust Reading School; joining only two other secondary schools in Highland to have gained certification so far! Last year, we began our journey to build a reading culture throughout the school. Pupils have taken part in a variety of book related activities in and out of lessons – the most memorable are definitely the whole school drop everything and read events – for us to be awarded our core level national accreditation. We are looking forward to developing more opportunities for pupils and staff to read for pleasure in the coming years and sustaining the culture of reading at Culloden Academy – well done pupils and staff!
