Engineering Challenge Winners!

Yesterday, some S1 & S2 pupils from Nairn Academy took part in the Jacob’s Secondary Engineering Challenge.  Their challenge was to design and build a crane which picked up an object and moved it to another position at a 90 degree angle.  They then had to present and test their models on the day.  All of the boys involved in this competition worked incredibly hard all year to design their models.

Big congratulations to The Green Team – Daniel Male, Struan MacLennan and Callum Breathet who came 1st and won a Waterstones gift card each.


Nairn Academy Spreads Message of Equality

rock challengeLast night we competed in Rock Challenge 2019 against other schools across Highland.  We are incredibly proud of all of the students and how they conducted themselves throughout the day, leading them to win The Spirit of Rock Challenge award. 

We want to ensure we can continue the message of equality and all of the hard work put in over the past year can be viewed by all.  Next time you are in the school come along and see some of our set!


We have really enjoyed having the Auldearn P7 class coming up to work with us in the Academy over the last few months.

We have had three sessions prepping and painting letters and they are now ready for their designs, which will be completed in the primary school over the next few months.

A big thank you to Julie Lawson and Dawn Smith for organising everything at the Auldearn end, and Stephen Fraser for letting them escape from class for the morning!

Finally, big thank you to Mr Leith, our Technician, who cut out all the letters and helped prep for each session.
