Albyn School

Albyn School, together with the TotalEnergies French School, is a thriving co-educational school for children and young people aged 2-18 in the heart of Aberdeen’s West End. Educating for over 150 years, the school has around 800 children in the Nursery, Lower and Upper Schools.  

Albyn is the perfect size – a goldilocks school, not too big and not too small – a great environment for curious minds to benefit from the broad curriculum, smaller class sizes and an array of fantastic co-curricular activities.   


Pupils are encouraged to select subjects and activities that they enjoy and gain fulfilment from which breeds a positive attitude towards learning. This was shown in 2022, with almost half of all S5 pupils gaining A grades at Higher. However, their great exam results are the by-product of an Albyn education, rather than the only objective. 

The school has a modern, inclusive and progressive community built on kindness, respect and resilience. The school celebrates the wide diversity of ethnicities, languages and backgrounds that are to be found among our truly international pupil, staff, parent and former pupil community.
