You can view the latest HMIe inspection report for Stranraer Academy which is designed to show how well children are being educated and to help the school to improve.
The Academy is a truly comprehensive school, serving the needs of all young people in the area, with provision included for the full spectrum of special needs.
Stranraer Academy dates from 1845. In 1965, two schools were opened on the present site - Stranraer Academy and Stranraer High School. In 1970 the two schools were merged and in 1997 the first phase of a major rebuild was completed. A significant new extension to the first phase was completed in January 2010, which houses the dining and assembly facilities along with the class bases for many of the practical subject areas.
The ferry companies serving routes to Northern Ireland are the major employers in the area, which is also known for agriculture and tourism.
