Countesswells will be the perfect place to raise a family, so provision has been made for two brand new primary schools and a secondary level Academy.
The Countesswells community campus will provide the location for the secondary school and one of the primary schools, as well as sports and other community facilities. The campus will be located in a prominent location at the eastern end of the Central Park, becoming a fully integrated resource for the wider community.
Countesswells Academy will be located within the community campus, overlooking the Central Park. The central location provides good access to the core road network and strategic path network to ensure it can be safely and easily accessed by pedestrians, buses and other vehicles.
It will provide a landmark at the eastern edge of the Central Park, reflecting its importance within the community. A modern new school for children, it will also offer educational, arts and sporting facilities for the whole community.
Two primary schools will be built within residential neighbourhoods, each offering high quality facilities in safe, accessible and attractive surroundings.
The first Primary School will be located as part of the neighbourhood centre to the north of Countesswells overlooking the Cults Burn network park. Serving the central and northern parts of the community, the school has a prominent and accessible location within the community.
The second primary school will also be located within the community campus area. This central location is accessible to residents living in the centre and to the south of Countesswells. Located adjacent to the secondary school the primary school will have its own grounds and facilities as well as benefit from sharing the facilities available within the campus.
There are several established primary and secondary schools in nearby Cults and Bieldside, as well as the acclaimed Aberdeen International School at Pitfodels.
