The School

Ellon Academy is a large rural secondary comprehensive school with a long tradition of excellence and positive relationships with the local community.

The academy is sited in a magnificent wooded setting, once the grounds of Ellon Castle. From being the ancient capital of Buchan, serving a vast outlying rural community, Ellon has developed dramatically over the years to become a thriving and popular commercial town serving both the local community and Aberdeen, the oil capital of Europe.

We Value

  • each young person as an individual
  • equality of educational opportunity
  • relationships within our community
  • the opinions of both staff and pupils
  • the concept of comprehensive education
  • hard work and self discipline
  • achievement

We Aim

  • to build on individual talents, interests and aspirations
  • to develop a tolerance and respect of others
  • to provide a happy working environment based on mutual respect
  • to develop an awareness and appreciation of the needs and aspirations of our community
  • to develop an appreciation of our natural and cultural heritage




There is a whole programme of interhouse games for house points taking place from August to March.  Watch the P.E. Noticeboard for details.


Monday sessions are aimed at relative beginners or those keen to either improve their basic skills or who are new to the sport.  There is a £1.00 per week charge to cover pitch hire.  Thursday sessions are aimed at improving skills but are aimed at those wishing to go on to play either at school or adult level



Open to all pupils in S5/6. 

Come along and design your own personal fitness plan using the new practice hall fitness suite


Basketball training for all years takes place on Monday after school.  The School enters teams in local league and cup competitions.

Recreational for S1/2 is on a Monday lunchtime for those who want to come and play games.



Aimed at all S1/2 girls interested in continuing netball from primary school.  It is hoped that “friendlies” maybe organised throughout the year.  Late transport is available.


Extra curricular swimming on Wednesdays after school is for lane swimming only.  It is an opportunity to develop your fitness or practice for assessment.  No diving, jumping in or crossing lanes.


Indoor football is a lunchtime activity which takes place throughout the year.  There are league championships and 2 cup competitions. Trophies are awarded to all winning teams.  Pupils can play in as many tournaments as they want.  S1 pupils can come along for practice matches in August to see if they like it before deciding whether to play in the leagues.



The dates and times of games cannot be given here but they are well advertised on the P.E. Noticeboards and in the bulletin.
