When will the first new school be available?

Schools are an important element in Grandhome’s neighbourhood structure and will offer high quality facilities to support learning for all ages. Grandhome’s masterplan includes two primary schools and a secondary school. A primary school will be first to be built by Aberdeen City Council and is destined to be delivered within phase two of the development.

In the meantime, children of families living in Grandhome will be accommodated at nearby Forehill Primary and Oldmachar Academy secondary school. If children of families in the Grandhome area would prefer to attend any school other than the current zoned schools, it would be possible to make a placing request for them to attend a different school. Details of the placing requests process is available on the Aberdeen City Council website.

For children of nursery school age, Banana Moon, located at the edge of the community, offers day care Monday to Friday including education, activities and meals. The nursery can accommodate up to 48 children and is part of an award-winning franchise of day nurseries across the UK, including two others in Aberdeen. To find out more about Banana Moon, visit
