Travelling to School

Robert Gordon's College is located at Schoolhill, Aberdeen, AB10 1FE which is connected to Union Street (the main street through the heart of Aberdeen city) via Belmont Street. The campus is a short walk from Aberdeen Bus and Train Station with public car parks located nearby. 

We have many families who travel to Robert Gordon’s College using the school coaches or public bus services and rail networks. In addition to this we work closely with neighbouring public car parking facilities to further facilitate a safe journey to and from the College. Further information for school families on parking locally is available in our log in area.

By School Bus

The school runs three 'yellow buses' in the mornings, from Peterculter, Westhill and Ellon, to bring Junior and Senior pupils to the school. Pupils are dropped off on Blackfriars Street at the side gate at approximately 0815. Each bus is supervised by an adult in addition to the driver and pupils are supervised on arrival at the school until they are safely in the playground.

At the end of the day the school runs a bus to the sports field at Countesswells for Primary 1-2 pupils. There are also buses to the West End and Peterculter with various stops for Primary 3-7 pupils and younger Junior School siblings. 

Places on the school morning and afternoon buses can be reserved on a termly basis using the online forms in the parents login area. Please contact the school office if you require a reminder of the login detailing the form class of your child.

Buses are provided to take pupils to and from the school sports field at Countesswells (Satnav postcode AB15 8AR) during the morning for Junior School Games. Senior pupils are transported to Countesswells at 1345 on their games day and make their own way home. In addition buses are provided for teams travelling to Countesswells after school for training.
