Competition: Design a new tartan for Albyn School

Albyn School has recently launched a competition to design a unique tartan for the School which represents its history, heritage and values.

Although all girls wearing a bespoke kilt in a tartan of their choice is a long-standing Albyn tradition, in our uniform review conducted in May last year we received feedback on the winter kilt from both pupils and parents. The key areas of concers were:

 the cost of a bespoke kilt and, because of this cost, only being able to have one kilt
 the lack of a single community identity due to having many different tartans
 the additional expense of having both a summer and a winter kilt

The winning design will be made into a year-round kilt to replace the current summer and winter kilts.

Headmaster Stefan Horsman said: “We hope that everyone across the Albyn community will be enthused and inspired to design something that epitomises Albyn, and leaves a lasting legacy for decades to come. Happy designing!”

The competition is open to all current Albyn School pupils and parents, as well as former pupils (FP), parents of FPs and other friends and supporters of the School.

Entries will be judged by a panel comprising of members of Albyn School staff, FPs and other industry experts. We will then work with the winner to turn their design into reality.
