fulfilling place to work

Camphill School Aberdeen is a local charity supporting children and young people - many with additional support needs - to reach their fullest potential.

We offer a Kindergarten, School and Life Skills Training Centre on a day and residential basis for children and young people aged 3 to 25 years.

Based on three campuses surrounded by peaceful woodlands in the suburbs of Aberdeen, young people are flourishing. They're learning, taking part in meaningful work, developing life skills, building friendships, and growing confidence and independence.  By providing a safe and homely environment, students can feel a sense of belonging and purpose here, and this will stand them in good stead to lead happy and healthy lives, now and into adulthood.

Camphill School is a community of 450 people - students, staff, volunteers and retired staff, with around 200 people living on site. We support each other and together, make continued efforts to live in an environmentally friendly way. Many awards and accreditations have been awarded, including Autism Accreditation and Eco-School status.

"My life before wasn’t so good until I came to Camphill. From the first day I started it went uphill. I feel safer because the teachers are very kind". Student
