We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Bellshill Academy website. The new website has been developed by school staff and staff from the Learning Centre which is based in the Academy. We hope that parents will find the site helpful in providing ongoing information about our young people and our school.

A detailed study support guide for parents can be found on the website and further details can be obtained from Yvonne Macbean in our Partnership Office
