Albyn School is an independent, co-educational school with approximately 800 pupils aged 2-18 located in the west end of Aberdeen.
Founded in 1867, Albyn School has evolved to become one of Scotland's leading independent, co-educational day schools with boarding for pupils aged 16 and above. The School has an excellent academic reputation with small classes, well motivated pupils and dedicated teachers who have all contributed to impressive examination results that have helped pupils into their universities of first choice.
The School has continually built and redeveloped its teaching facilities since its inception, creating specialist departmental areas, ICT suites, business education facilities, music practice rooms, art and design studios and numerous classrooms. In August 2007, Albyn School opened a brand new state of the art Lower School building. The building has three floors and 14 bright classrooms that look out across Aberdeen. In 2011, a new toddler nursery and three additional science laboratories were built to meet the needs of increasing numbers seeking careers in science, engineering and medicine and in August 2012, HRH The Duke of Gloucester opened ten new modern and spacious classrooms for the teaching of Mathematics, English and Technology.
In November 2014 we completed a further phase of our building redevelopment project. This involved the building of an enhanced library resource for our Lower School pupils and a brand new study facility for senior pupils. It also included the creation of a state of the art training suite for dedicated athletes and an intimate lecture theatre where musicians and drama students can perform. This summer we complete an engineering centre for the teaching of engineering science. The School now has an excellent environment that marries together a contemporary and traditional architecture for the teaching of its pupils.
