Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire hold a large amount of records relating to schools and education in the North East of Scotland.
This map shows the location of schools across the North East. Each school for which we hold records for is located, though there are also some for which we hold no records. School records for the Moray Council area, including areas of historic Banffshire, are now held by the Moray Council Heritage Centre.
Please note that the map works best with Chrome and Firefox browsers, and may not work correctly on Internet Explorer.
The different coloured pins note the historical county in which the school was located:
Blue: Aberdeen City
You can zoom in and out on the map using the + and - signs. To see a list of schools in alphabetical order, view a larger version of Schools in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, or click the link underneath the map. Clicking on the pin will give you the name of the school, the parish it is in, and its reference number for checking our Online Catalogue to see what records are held.
We have also produced lists showing which schools are in which parish and the schools in alphabetical order.
Please note that the information in this list may have changed over time as some schools have since closed, but it does give an idea of which school may have been attended depending on which street someone was living.
