Breadalbane Academy is proud to provide opportunities for Gaelic Medium Education in our Secondary school. We are also committed to offering our young people opportunities to engage with Scotland’s cultural heritage, including a consideration for the broader culture of Gaelic. In so doing, we can familiarise our young people with this important aspect of Scottish heritage, as well as maintaining Gaelic as a vibrant living language in Perthshire.
The school has a Gaelic Medium Education (GME) provision which ranges from Nursery to Senior Phase. Our current GME provision in Secondary is available from S1 to S4 and will extend into S5 from 2022. This year will be the first year in which we will present pupils in the SQA qualification for fluent speakers: Gàidhlig. This will be an exciting milestone for us.
All pupils in S1 and S2 experience Gaelic for Learners, with pupils in S3 and beyond able to opt to continue on to courses leading to SQA certification in Gaelic for Learners.
Please contact the school if you would like to know more about Gaelic Medium Education.
