Albyn School is an independent, co-educational school with approximately 740 pupils aged 2-18 located in the west end of Aberdeen.
Founded in 1867, Albyn School has evolved to become one of Scotland's leading independent, co-educational day schools. The School has an excellent academic reputation with small classes, well motivated pupils and dedicated teachers who have all contributed to impressive examination results that have helped pupils into their universities of first choice.
Each child is unique and special. From the age of 2 years to the pre-school year every girl and boy goes through an astonishing period of development.
These few years are crucial for your child's future as he or she moves into more formal schooling and then adult life beyond. It is vital therefore to get those first months and years right. In the Albyn Nurseries our aim is to provide a safe, secure and caring environment for all the children in our care. We strive to nurture your child in bright, happy, stimulating and educationally structured surroundings.
Much has been made recently of the importance of providing the kind of atmosphere in which pupils feel happy and secure.
Albyn has always provided an environment that enables each child to blossom and therefore fulfil his or her individual potential. It is evident from our calendar of events that the Lower School children have a busy schedule. In addition, the staff work very hard behind the scenes to coordinate the children's class work to form a cohesive programme enabling them to progress smoothly from year to year.
We recognise that the great majority of pupils who attain places in Albyn's Upper School will eventually progress onto University.
That is why knowledge shapes our curriculum, study programmes, homework and pattern of assessment. We are an academically successful School with a public examination record that rates as among the best in Aberdeen and shire.
On the admissions pages you will find information regarding the admissions process as well as our school prospectus and application for admission forms.
Once you have read through the information please contact us and we will be happy to arrange a visit to the School and give you and your sons and daughters the chance to talk to staff and see the School for yourself.
