Aberdeen broadens education provision with first Additional Support Needs school
Aberdeen City Council has taken possession of a £17m JM Architects school, offering places for up to 150 young people with Additional Support Needs (ASN).

Delivered in partnership with Hub North Scotland and Ogilvie Construction Orchard Brae is the first of its kind in Aberdeen, replacing a number of existing schools and services which had previously been scattered around the city.

Hub North Scotland, Chief Executive, Michael Padzinski commented: “This environment for learning and development will provide the students and staff with a world class, modern learning campus, which sites at the heart of the community for the future”.

In addition to providing a learning environment the school doubles as a community hub for parents, families and charities as well as offering a range of outreach services for speech and language, autism and social work.
