I am Douglas Watt, Head Teacher for Northfield Academy, and was appointed as the substantive Head Teacher in March 2020. Along with the staff team, we are committed to driving improvement within our school to facilitate learners to build confidence and capacity to lead their learning. Northfield Academy is in the Northfield area of Aberdeen, within Aberdeen City Council’s West Locality Group.
Our vision is that Northfield Academy is built on community, respect and empathy .Together, we maximise opportunities for young people to attain and achieve. We aspire to be outstanding! We work in partnership with the families of our young people to provide them with meaningful learning opportunities while embedding qualities and skills for lifelong learning. Effective relationships with our partners and parents, combined with a drive for our families to be involved in their children’s learning enable us to have an impact beyond just the classroom.
We look forward to working with you and building these relationships with you and your child throughout their time here. Please don’t hesitate to contact the school if there is anything we can support your family with.
