Students from an Aberdeen school are given the chance to expand their skills and life experiences, inspectors said.
Monitors from the Care Inspectorate watchdog visited the boarding facilities at Albyn School on Great Western Road, Aberdeen, on May 30, and have now published their inspection report.
They rated it “very good” for care, support, management, leadership, environment and staffing – the second best of six possible ratings.
“Within the school curriculum, and at evenings and weekends, students had the opportunity to be involved in a wide range of opportunities to expand their skills, interests and life experiences,” said the report.
It added: “They were encouraged to be involved in a wide range of physical activity, including sports, the school gym and walking locally.
“Students spoke highly of the care and support they received from the housemistress and assistant housemistress.”
Feedback provided by students to inspectors was “overwhelmingly positive”.
The report added: “They enjoyed living at Albyn boarding and felt they were well looked after by boarding staff.
“They felt there were good opportunities to develop friendships and reported no bullying.”
