Great news! Our school along with 8 others in the whole of the UK have been selected to Pilot the S.H.A.P.E initiative, please see details below. Massive thanks to Miss Carey and Mr Macmillan for submitting an outstanding application and resulting in a fantastic growth opportunity for all our learners in the land of Humanities!!!
SHAPE is a new collective name for Social Sciences, Humanities and the Arts.
There are three core objectives for the SHAPE initiative:
- Increase the visibility of SHAPE subjects.
- Demonstrate the global relevance of SHAPE subjects.
- Enable people to consider themselves as students of SHAPE.
The SHAPE schools programme, which is being supported by the London School of Economics, aims to meet the SHAPE objectives by partnering with schools across the UK. The schools programme will run in the summer term 2021 to pilot a model of training teachers as ambassadors of SHAPE subjects and facilitators of SHAPE learning materials. In recognition of their time commitment each school will be offered a £300 bursary.

Carbon Capture Project continued
Day 2 of our tree planting and it's the turn of our Senior Executive - School Captain Isla, and Vice School Captains Rachael and Alex-Rae. Leaving a legacy for years to come of a fine row of rowan trees up the school drive.
Carbon Capture Project Begins!
Huge thanks to our senior phase learners who have worked so hard in their practical classes that they can spare an afternoon planting some of our new Rowan trees along the drive at Fraserburgh Academy.
This is just the beginning of a major change to the school campus as we aim to help improve the built environment of our town with more trees and fruit growing bushes over the coming weeks.
All thanks to our partners Keep Scotland Beautiful for their funding and local partners Oor Bairns Charitable trust for a fabulous donation of protective netting.
Listening Service for pupils aged 14-18 years
The Aberdeenshire school counselling listening service is continuing to run up to and during the Easter holidays. The service is for for Aberdeenshire school pupils aged 14+ . Any young person who is struggling with their emotional wellbeing can access the service. Further information is attached for your convenience.
The service is available for a couple of hours each day Monday to Friday. Booking can be accessed via this link Listening Service. The young person can choose a day and appointment time that suits them. They will be asked to enter their name, school and contact details. The counsellor will then call them at the agreed time. Appointments can be booked up to 7 days in advance and cancelled up to an hour before the appointment.
The service is confidential so data on who calls the service will not be passed back to the school. However, the Counsellor is aware of the young person’s name and school in order that Child Protection protocols can be followed where necessary.
