Eastbank Academy is a six year non-denominational secondary school in the east end of Glasgow which serves the communities of Bridgeton, Dalmarnock, Greenfield, Parkhead, Sandyhills, Shettleston, Springboig and Tollcross.  Approximately 5% of pupils come from other primary schools by placing requests.  We are proud of our tradition of strong and effective partnership working and, together, remain committed to improving the life choices of our children and young people.

The motto of the Academy, Splendeat Lux, is an extract from the Sermon on the Mount and in fuller version means, “Let your light shine before men that they may see your good works”.  We expect all members of our school community to work towards this goal.

Eastbank Academy offers a broad and varied curriculum, designed to satisfy the needs and aspirations of pupils of all abilities.  We also pride ourselves in offering a wide range of extra-curricular activities including sports, music, educational trips and visits.  There is a strong commitment to the provision of staff development and training.  We believe firmly that our main focus must be on learning and teaching and raising levels of attainment and achievement.

Our school values were recently reviewed.  As as school community we collaborated to agree what our values are, and what these mean:
 
Value How this should be evident in practice
Ambition We try to be the best we can be, work hard and aim for the stars!
Respect We treat others the way we want to be treated.
 
Responsibility We are in control of what we say and do and make good choices.
Kindness We support others and show them that we care.
 

Our school mision statement, which incorporates our aims and vision, is:
Eastbank Academy is dedicated to ensuring a welcoming, inclusive and supportive school for all. We encourage commitment and resilience in a safe and caring environment wherein all successes are celebrated. We endeavour to equip all learners with the tools and skills for their journey ahead, no matter their path.
Let your light shine!
Splendeat Lux.
