Aberdeenshire Council operates a system of recovering from parents a proportion of the cost of providing the raw materials required for items that are made, and then retained, by pupils as part of their Craft, Design and Technology courses. Letters will be issued in the next few days for pupils who study Craft, Design and Technology courses with details of the amount due for this session. Aberdeenshire Council has introduced a new way of accessing online payments, called MyAccount , which many parents and carers have already been using to pay school meals. You can access or create an account by clicking here –

Lighthouse Turriff Youth Club
Lighthouse is a youth club for academy aged children in Turriff/surrounding areas and is aiming to relaunch on Friday nights between 7 and 9pm. You can come along and be warm, have food, listen to music and be with friends. They have wifi, computers and a pool table.
The evening will close with a 5 minute Christian message.
Their aim is to reach the youth in Turriff with a Christian approach and give them a safe warm place to come on a Friday night with their friends.

Head Teacher’s Welcome

Welcome to the Turriff Academy website. One of our senior leadership classes is currently working on revising and improving the website and keeping it up to date with our successes and achievements as well as informing pupils, parents and the wider community about key dates and events.

Turriff Academy is a community which fosters Respect, Ambition and Achievement for all. Turriff Academy has a long history of upholding the values of honesty, hard work, fairness and ambition and it has a strong reputation as a school where pupils feel safe, secure, supported and included.

I am impressed by how Respect, Ambition and Achievement are promoted throughout the school.

We aim to develop our young people to be the best they can be in everything they do to enable them to make a positive contribution to the local, national and global community. We aim to ensure that all our pupils secure and sustain a positive destination beyond school.

We have an exciting year ahead and are looking forward to working with our partners in the community in developing our young people.

I hope that you find the information provided useful and that it gives you a flavour of the ethos and aims of Turriff Academy.

Ms Lee Menzies
