Hillside School is a residential school for boys with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. We accept referrals from Local Authorities for young people aged 10-18 years for whom mainstream education has ceased to be an option. The school which was established in 1983 is situated within a 120 acre estate in the picturesque east coast village of Aberdour.

Hillside School offers young people a broad, general education based upon the principles of Curriculum for Excellence. Presently our young people learn across the following curricular areas: English, Maths, Science, Computing, Rural Skills, Life Skills and Personal Development, Health and Wellbeing, Woodworking, Art and Design, Physical Education, Religious and Moral Education and Social Studies.
