A north-east secondary school has been given a very positive report following a visit from government inspectors.
Education Scotland has commended Aberdeen Grammar School for its healthy relationships between staff and young people, the “highly effective” leadership of its head teacher and the “strong commitment” to working together.
However the body also told the school to review the way it supports young people to reflect on their achievements and ensure that the high quality of its teaching is consistent.
Head teacher Alison Murison said: “I am delighted with the very positive report from Education Scotland on the work we do at Aberdeen Grammar School.
“I am extremely proud of my staff and pupils and I am so pleased that the report recognises their talent, hard work and success.
“I would also like to express my thanks to our parents for all their support and placing such value on the importance of education.”
John Wheeler, Aberdeen City Council’s education operational delivery convener, said he was “really heartened” by the report.
“The high level of achievement and attainment at the school is a testament to the shared commitment and vision of the entire school community including, teachers, staff, pupils and parents,” he added.
