Expeditions is a new product that allows teachers to take their classes on virtual field trips, immersing students in experiences that bring abstract concepts to life and giving students a deeper understanding of the world beyond the classroom. Here we see pupils using Google Cardboard which is a virtual reality viewer made almost entirely of actual cardboard. Cardboard allows anyone with a modern smartphone to experience virtual reality.

Head Teacher’s Welcome
Welcome to the Turriff Academy website. One of our senior leadership classes is currently working on revising and improving the website and keeping it up to date with our successes and achievements as well as informing pupils, parents and the wider community about key dates and events.
Turriff Academy is a community which fosters Respect, Ambition and Achievement for all. Turriff Academy has a long history of upholding the values of honesty, hard work, fairness and ambition and it has a strong reputation as a school where pupils feel safe, secure, supported and included.
Having recently joined Turriff Academy, I am impressed by how Respect, Ambition and Achievement are promoted throughout the school.
We aim to develop our young people to be the best they can be in everything they do to enable them to make a positive contribution to the local, national and global community. We aim to ensure that all our pupils secure and sustain a positive destination beyond school.
We have an exciting year ahead and are looking forward to working with our partners in the community in developing our young people.
I hope that you find the information provided useful and that it gives you a flavour of the ethos and aims of Turriff Academy.
Ms Lee Menzies
