Welcome to Robert Gordon's College

Our pupils’ success is built on a strong sense of who they are, what they can achieve, and what it feels like to be part of a happy and purposeful school community. Our school motto translates as ‘Be all you can be’ and we believe every individual child deserves this ambition. Robert Gordon’s College is a school which will prepare your child for a life where ambition, success and confidence are rooted in security, happiness and a sense of who they are.

We are pleased to welcome our pupils and staff back together again onsite. Schoolhill and Countesswells have not been the same without you. You will see new measures that have been put in place including visitor and parking restrictions. We continue to work together to support one another and help keep everyone safe.

Robert Gordon's is fun, fantastic and exciting. Every morning I look forward to seeing my teacher and friends. My favourite subject is Art because doing Art makes me feel like a real artist.

Returning to Aberdeen after a 24 year absence, Gordon’s was the obvious choice - renowned, at the heart of the community and a focus on the quality of all aspects of learning. The College develops pupils from diverse backgrounds and with hugely diverse aspirations. The supportive and charitable ethos shines through.

Robert Gordon’s gave me the confidence to be me, and to push myself to reach my potential. The College nurtured my ambitions, encouraged me to develop skills in team work, leadership and communication and provided a safe place to learn and achieve to a high academic level.

Robert Gordon’s College has given me the opportunity to work with exceptional pupils and provided a great support structure for developing my career. My creative and technical background has been embraced and allowed me to flourish with activities such as training at the educators course in NuVu, Boston MA. and helping me to expand to teach not only Technology but also Art.
