Meet the Staff

We are fortunate at TRA in having an able and enthusiastic staff (teaching and support), committed to providing a challenging, relevant educational experience at all stages.

The senior management team - Mr Mark Jones (Rector), Mrs Connie Farrell (Depute Rector) and Mr Ross Waldie (Depute Rector) - share a wide range of responsibilities.  Remits are reviewed regularly and adjusted to ensure individuals develop a breadth of experience.

Central to these responsibilities are the links established with subject departments through regular attendance at departmental meetings. Subjects are led by Faculty Leaders or Principal Teachers who are responsible for the smooth running of the department.

Angela Gardiner History, Geography and RME
Stephanie Disbury Mathematics, Numeracy and Business Education
Katie Elder Biology, Chemistry and Physics
Marion MacDonald Home Economics, Music and Physical Education

Guidance and Support for Learning Teachers play an important role in helping pupils through their time in Tain Royal Academy.

The teaching process is very effectively supported by auxiliaries, instructors and technicians and our librarians, Susan Weir and Katie Jeffs, are currently building a well-resourced, modern library, a key facility in any effective school.

The smooth running of the school is ensured by office staff led by administrative assistant, Mrs Libby Maclean, and janitorial staff led by head janitor, Mr Greg Pumphrey.   Cleaning and Catering staff are employed by ECS Catering and Cleaning Services.

Tain Royal Academy Community Complex (TRACC) forms part of Tain's Community School, offering facilities and opportunities for the whole community and is managed by Mrs Kelly Skinner, Facilities Manager Tain & Golspie.
