Rights Respecting School

This year Banchory Academy has been working towards recognition as a Rights Respecting School, working with UNICEF to educate pupils and staff on children's rights and how to put them into practice every day.
And we are very happy to announce we have just been awarded our Bronze Badge, and have already started working towards our silver.

A Right's Respecting School doesn't just benefit the school, it makes a positive impact on the whole community.

*Children are healthier and happier
*Children feel safe
*Children have better relationships
*Children become active and involved in school life and the wider world.

School Captains



I’m Tegan and I am one of Banchory Academy’s School Captains this year. I am really looking forward to the year ahead and to helping our school and pupils get back to the new kind of ‘normal’ following the pandemic. Rowing is a big part of my life, so I would love to use this year as an opportunity to drive the participation in sports and activities throughout the school. I hope to help people make the most out of their school experience, as I have found that having fun and working hard has made the last 5 years of school fly by!


My name is Hannah and it’s a huge privilege to be one of your school captains this year. In my spare time you could find me either behind a drum kit, having an Indian Takeaway with my friends, or in my bed! One of my main goals is to ensure all students here at Banchory Academy feel they can use their voices to make the changes they want to see. I really want to be able to work closely with you all to create a warming and encouraging environment around the school. I'm confident that Tegan and I will represent the school well and provide strong support for the leadership team. Cheers to the year to come!
