Welcome


Welcome to the Fraserburgh Academy School Website.  I hope you find this interesting and informative about our work with our young people in our school community.

Currently, like all other schools in Scotland, we are now in the second term of being fully open and working within COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.  Our staff and pupils have very adapted very quickly to this new way of working and learning and teaching activities are ongoing, albeit adapted in some instances to fit within guidelines.

Learning remains at the heart of our school with great emphasis placed on providing engaging learning experiences and focused intervention.  We recognise that what happens in our classrooms is key to the success of our students and to the continuation of our upward rise in attainment.  It is where we continue to build knowledge, develop skills and promote positive attitudes to learning.  We have highly qualified staff who provide a supportive and encouraging environment where every child is known and learning flourishes.

This session there is a strong emphasis on the wellbeing of all pupils and the Senior Executive have devised a programme of activities and initiatives to help support all young people at this difficult time.  Further opportunities have been created for pupil participation in the decision-making processes within school.

We understand that this is a difficult time for pupils and their families and should you wish to contact your son or daughter’s guidance teacher please phone the school phone number or contact us using this email address: fraserburgh.aca@aberdeenshire.gov.uk.  The website posts below provide a wealth of information about learning at Fraserburgh Academy and more can be found on the Learning on Home tab above.  We will endeavour to keep the website and our social media pages updated with information during this time.

Best wishes

Irene Sharp
Rector
