Kelvinside Academy, Glasgow
Kelvinside Academy will open Scotland’s School of Innovation, the first of its kind in the UK, in September.
Based on an architecture studio model, learning in the new innovation school will be focused on real-world challenges and collaborative problem-solving, rather than exams and results. Kelvinside has an exclusive partnership with the world’s leading innovation school NuVu – Boston-based education pioneers who are at the forefront of creative learning in the US. Together, both organisations are working to challenge the boundaries of traditional education.

As a society, we face challenges that are complex, multifaceted, and require urgent action.We don’t know what the world of work will look like in 2050 but we do know that we will need brilliant problem-solvers who can tackle these issues in new ways. We will teach our students the knowledge, skills, and frameworks they need to create the change they want to see.
