Welcome to Hazlehead Academy

Fàilte gu Acadamaidh Hazlehead

Hazlehead Academy, formerly known as Central School then Aberdeen Academy, is a comprehensive secondary school in Aberdeen, Scotland. It is also the designated secondary school for pupils studying Gaelic as well as one of seven SFA performance schools in Scotland.

We have four main feeder primary schools: Airyhall Primary School, Fernielea Primary School, Hazlehead Primary School and Kingsford Primary School, however every year we have a multiple number of pupils joining us from numerous different schools.

Our priority is to deliver the highest possible teaching and learning experiences to our pupils to ensure that they achieve and attain at the highest level and develop the skills and personal qualities that will enable them to excel in their future careers. Good quality relationships are vital to the success of any organisation and pupils, parents and staff working in partnership together is a key part of this.

I encourage you to become fully involved in the life and work of the school and encourage your son/daughter to take full advantage of the many and varied opportunities available.

At any time if you have a query about any aspect of school life, please contact us. I hope that your association with the school will be a happy and successful one and I look forward to meeting you in person and working with you in the years ahead.

We always aim to work within our core values of AMBITION, CONFIDENCE, INCLUSION and RESPECT.
