Upper School

We recognise that the great majority of pupils who attain places in Albyn’s Upper School will eventually progress onto University and that 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.

We prepare pupils for National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher Level examinations set by the Scottish Qualifications Agency, which is the national accreditation and awarding body in Scotland. We also prepare pupils for IGCSEs and A Levels in Music, History, Classical Civilization and A Level Economics.

The root of our success is the focus that we place on teaching and learning. Our members of staff are highly qualified and dedicated. We combine the best traditional approaches with innovative teaching methods to ensure that lessons are dynamic and exciting. A high staff-to-pupil ratio ensures that our classes remain small and pupils receive individual attention throughout their time with us.

While academic success is important for us, the School also seeks to foster a love of learning, provide a broad and balanced curriculum that supports the intellectual, aesthetic and physical development of the pupils, according to their abilities, needs and interests.
