Together we are a strong, collaborative and inclusive community where everyone is treated with respect and kindness. Everyone is known and supported to grow as an individual. The character of each individual is developed, and their physical and mental wellbeing is nurtured in a safe environment.
At Albyn School we are educating for life. Our progressive philosophy is centred on being stronger together with a focus on building academic excellence, growing community spirit and engendering social conscience. We want our pupils to be self-aware, ambitious and outward looking so they can contribute to the world as global citizens.
In order to achieve this, we seek to help them develop six key qualities: Curiosity; Resilience; Confidence; Endeavour; Empathy and Teamwork.
Everything we do is underpinned by our ethos of community spirit, love of learning and mutual respect. We know that we are better together.
Albyn School is a forward-looking, forward-thinking and progressive school. Our strategy plays to our strengths, it values our history and heritage, and it empowers our children to take ownership of their future.
To lead with our strong core values so that your child will flourish and reach their full potential.
To foster a love of learning and promote a sense of belonging in your child.
To be the first choice independent school for your child by offering an educational experience that embraces all they can be.
Self-aware: Everyone is encouraged to learn about themselves and move beyond their comfort zone to develop the resilience for whatever life may throw at them. Curiosity develops independent-minded, critical thinkers able to reflect on their experiences and ready to take charge of their own life.
Ambitious: Every member of the community is empowered to become a lifelong learner and to strive for excellence. Hard work and endeavour build the confidence that unlocks potential. A breadth of exciting and rewarding academic and co-curricular opportunities and experiences guides every member of the community to discover their unique passions, talents and purpose.
Outward Looking: We develop outward looking individuals with compassion, empathy and a strong social conscience who are catalysts for change in a rapidly changing and uncertain world. Teamwork prepares them to be a force for good and to make a positive impact in their local community and the wider world.
