Morrison’s Academy Expands Primary School to Meet Demand

Perthshire’s leading independent day school, Morrison’s Academy has announced today that it will be running two Primary One classes from August.

The co-educational School in Crieff made the decision to expand its lower School offering following a period of sustained interest and unprecedented growth in both its Nursery and Primary year groups.

The expansion, which will create several new appointments within the Primary School ensures the School can continue to deliver the excellent education it is renowned for; where every child is known, encouraged and supported to achieve their full potential.

Morven Bulloch, Head of Primary School said: “Our Primary School is filled with light and laughter and our large, bright classrooms are home to welcoming, kind teachers and inquisitive pupils. We know every child. We know their strengths, their interests, their talents and their challenges and are able to tailor our teaching to meet the needs of every pupil.

“In our nurturing environment, our youngest pupils build confidence and flourish. Developing numeracy and literacy skills is a real priority during these formative years. However, we also believe that our Golden Thread subjects of STEM, Art, Music, French, PE and Outdoor Education are equally important in helping children to build other skills, find their passions and develop a real and enduring love of learning.

“Led by a dedicated and well-qualified team of teachers, pupils enjoy the benefits of small, non-composite classes. The move to create two Primary one classes ensures that truly personalised education remains central to our offering, as well as helping our pupils settle into school life quickly.”

Andrew McGarva, Rector of Morrison’s Academy added: “I am delighted by the growth we are seeing in our School and look forward to welcoming all of the new families to our community.

“Morrison’s Academy is a special place and it is wonderful to see so many families seeing this too. Our reputation for delivering an excellent education in an environment which fosters strong values makes me very proud. Parents know that their children will be supported and receive a personalised education that sets them on a road to success.”
