Our School Day

At Lochside Academy we operate a timetable with 2 longer days finishing a 15:45 and 3 shorter days at 14:55.  The 32 period per week model allows us offer a wider range of courses to our pupils in the BGE phase whilst also allowing for 7 Level 4/5 courses ( in S4) and 5 Level 5/6 courses (in S5/6).  It also allows us to offer our pupils Wider Achievement courses in S5/6 which enhances the number of SQA accredited awards/courses for our pupils.
