Hillside School is a residential school for boys with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. We accept referrals from Local Authorities for young people aged 10-18 years for whom main stream education has ceased to be an option


Hillside School is a 24 hour service provider, operating 365 days per year. Our Academic year runs from August to June.

The school which was established in 1983, is situated within a 120 acre estate in the picturesque east coast village of Aberdour

Our Key Team system ensures that assessment, planning and ongoing review of all placements leads to positive outcomes for young people.

Timetabled in-house support is provided to individual young people by a Consultant Psychologist from The Kiel Centre who attends on a weekly basis
