Welcome to the Westhill Academy website – we hope you find the information here useful.

Key dates and significant events are available to view in the calendar.

The website, like the life and work of the school, is always growing, changing and developing. We intend adding to the website over the session, particularly by highlighting resources to support home and family learning.


Mrs A. Reid

Head Teacher

Chief Invigilator

We have an opportunity to lead and support in one of the key parts of the senior phase in Westhill Academy – Chief Invigilator for the SQA examinations.

This role spans two periods within the school year: part of February for the preliminary exams and late April until early June for the final exam diet.

You will be working with school staff, invigilators and following SQA advice. Full training will be provided by the SQA.

This is such an important, and rewarding, role - please consider this for yourself or share with someone you think it may interest.
