Welcome to the Aboyne Academy website


Aboyne Academy provides secondary school education for the communities of mid and upper Deeside. The current school roll is 655 (May 2024.) The school has the largest geographical catchment area of all the schools in Aberdeenshire and has 10 associated Primary Schools.

The school is known for having consistently high attainment levels, a positive ethos and prides itself on having a welcoming atmosphere and strong community spirit.

Our school ethos is underpinned by our 3 core values of Respect, Determination and Compassion. We strive to develop these values through everything that we do.

We are very proud of our powerful partnerships with The Wood Foundation, The Fife Arms Braemar, Glen Tanar Estate, HorseBack UK and Aboyne and Upper Deeside Rotary Club. Working with these partners we have an ambitious plan to transform the way we prepare young people for life beyond school. 

My vision is for a school which is unique, inclusive and sustainable with a focus on excellence and wellbeing.

I believe in open and genuine partnership with parents and the staff team and myself are committed to responding quickly to any queries or concerns that you may have.

Whether you are a pupil or parent or someone who wishes to find out more about the school, I do hope that you will find our website to be informative and helpful. If you have any queries or should you wish to visit us, then please contact the school and we will be very pleased to help.
