Ardrossan Academy
125th Anniversary

A History of Ardrossan Academy 1882-2007

To celebrate the 125th anniversary of the founding of Ardrossan Academy, staff have been working hard, writing a book about the history of the school since its conception on 2 October 1882.

The book costs £5.


The book, which contains about 200 pages, chronicles the day-to-day running of the school from the day it was opened to the present day.
It contains archive photos of all the previous headteachers, groups of staff and pupils and numerous other scenes of nostalgia.
There are also some nostalgic stories of bygone schooldays which, thanks to this wonderful book, will never be forgotten.
Extracts from the school's log book serve to illustrate how the education of our young people has progressed from the Victorian era, through the dark days of World War 2, on through the 'Swinging 60s' right up to the present. It also highlights some of the more memorable traditions which have now been lost.

The book also contains a DVD which contains slideshows of most of the photos in the book, all the photos which have appeared in the Archives section of the website over the years and three short videos.

The book costs £5.
