Meet the Parent Council

The Parent Council for session 2022/2023 is detailed below. The PC has elected office bearers and year group representatives. We’d be delighted to see you at our PC meetings or pop over and say hello at any school information events.

Andrew Tennant – Chair & S3 Rep

As a parent of an S1, S2 and S4 I want to play a role in the parent council to help improve the outcomes for children.  Asking the big questions and challenging why!  Most importantly I want to work together to ensure children have equality and justice while being educated in today’s world.

Will Currie – Vice Chair & S1 Rep

I’m really pleased to be part of the parent council and represent the S1 year group. I’m also the PTA volunteer coordinator. I want to support the school in any way I can, especially in helping to improve communication between the wider parent community and the school. I’m happy to engage with any parents to help represent their views.

Philip Hartley – Treasurer & S4 Rep

Happy to be part of the parent council representing the S2 year group.  As a STEM ambassador,  I have been helping the Lego Robotics Club for the last 3 years.  Having been a foster carer for 14 years, I have experience of the difficulties faced by Looked After and Accommodated Children both in and out of school.

Elizabeth Lambert – Secretary & S6 Rep

I hope that in supporting the school and each other we can help pupils look back at their time in Hermitage Academy as a positive and rewarding period of their lives.

Lucy Sage – ASN Rep

I represent a subgroup within the parent council for ASN and the attached charity – Hermitage Academy Pupil Support and Development Group. My role is to ensure topics raised and debated include a view from the ASN standpoint and that ASN is fully included in decision making and thought processes.

Stella Kinloch – S2 rep

Inclusion and ensuring all parent voices are heard is important to me. I’m happy to meet with fellow parents in any capacity to represent their views.

Laura Watt – S2 Rep

I want to learn more about how the school runs to help me understand how to help develop the full potential of all pupils and what the school can offer the talent of the future.

Miles Stratton – S3 Rep

I have two children at HA, one in S1 and one in S2. The parents’ council do an amazing job and I felt it important to be involved in supporting parents and see pupils are given every chance to attain their goals.
