Physical Education and Games play a key role within life in the Upper School. Sports encourages our pupils to stay active and to stay fit. Competitive sports can teach a number of skills which are transferable to other aspects of your child’s life such as teamwork, endurance, strategy and healthy competition. It also opens opportunities for our pupils to interact with other schools, locally, nationally and internationally when taking part in competitions and tournaments.

Athletics / Badminton / Basketball / Cricket / Football / Golf / Gymnastics / Hockey / Netball / Rounders / Rowing / Skiing / Social Dance / Swimming / Tennis / X-Country
The pupils have the opportunity to take part in individual, team and specialised sports depending on the time of year. In recent years our netball and football teams have been particularly successful, achieving places in the final rounds of national competitions. Those involved with athletics, skiing, hockey, tennis, golf and rowing have also won honours for the School. Many of our sporting activities take place at Albyn’s playing fields at Milltimber, in our floodlit all-weather court and in the School Gymnasium.
We are also extremely privileged to have a fantastic selection of sporting facilities in and around Aberdeen, including award-winning golf courses, an artificial ski centre, the river Dee for our rowers and fantastic sports centres. We also have a fully equipped fitness suite within the School which pupils can use for training or to keep fit.
