Job Description

The Aboyne Cluster is a very diverse catchment. It includes large communities such as Aboyne and Torphins, together with several small villages and some remote rural areas. Aboyne is situated on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park and much of the park area is included within the cluster.

Pupils transfer to Aboyne Academy from ten local primary schools. These are: Aboyne, Ballater, Braemar, Crathie, Finzean, Kincardine O’Neil, Logie Coldstone, Lumphanan, Tarland and Torphins.

Aboyne Academy is a medium sized secondary school with around 720 pupils. The school’s size is small enough to enable us to retain a friendly atmosphere. The school has a positive ethos with good relationships between staff and pupils. There is also a strong working partnership with parents and the local community.

The school is very much at the heart of the community and shares its facilities with Deeside Community Centre.  The accommodation and facilities within the school are of good quality and are well maintained. The school building contains a fully equipped theatre, a swimming pool and a large games hall. The public library is also situated within the building.

The Janitor Team consists of a Supervisory Janitor and four Group Janitors. The team is also supplemented by Caretakers who cover weekend and evening work at both the academy and any of the cluster primary schools that are used for evening bookings.
