Bridge of Don Academy is a six-year comprehensive school and Community Education Centre located in the north of Aberdeen, Scotland.
The school campus is shared with a neighbouring primary, Braehead School, which is a brand new school. Also on the campus is St Columba’s Church of Scotland and Roman Catholic Church. The school is on an elevated site with extensive views over Aberdeen and the North Sea. The school’s playing fields and Westfield Park are adjacent to the campus. School facilities include a 25 metre swimming pool and a drama studio.
The school is well regarded by its community and local families are very proud of it. The school community includes Bridge of Don and the villages to the north including Balmedie, Belhelvie, Black Dog and Potterton. Pupils from these villages have been taken to this school by bus since 1972. Some of our current country pupils have grandparents who were educated here.
The school roll is currently 730. Our energetic and talented staff have excellent relationships with pupils, parents and the local community. We have an active and supportive Parent Council and would welcome new members. There are strong links with local companies, with a number of them making a significant impact on the curriculum. The school is at present working to expand these links as part of a drive to make pupils’ education even more relevant to the contemporary workplace.
