Academic excellence with a Biblical worldview
At Melville-Knox Schools we aim after the highest possible standards of education. Our aim is to employ teachers that are all of the finest calibre and registered through the General Teaching Council of Scotland. Our schools are committed to small class sizes to give extra focus to each individual pupil’s needs.
Since God created all things and all knowledge belongs to Him, our schools teach each subject on the curriculum from a Biblical perspective. Christianity affects the whole of life, including how we think and learn and so we teach how to love God with all the heart and mind.
Network of schools
Our school works in partnership with Melville-Knox Scotland to achieve the best in professional practice. It is their aim to develop schools across Scotland so that all parents can have the opportunity to send their child to a Melville Knox School.
Welcome to Melville-Knox Aberdeen
Melville-Knox Aberdeen aims to become the first Christian school in the North-East of Scotland. We plan to offer a thorough and excellent education that is based upon the Word of God and prepares children to serve God throughout all stages of life. Children need to learn Biblical wisdom, a quality that is desperately lacking in modern Scotland. Biblical wisdom is not just learning facts about the Bible, but learning how the Bible relates to all of life. Biblical wisdom bows before Christ in every subject of the curriculum. It honours Christ who is Lord of all of life. Our School seeks to be consistently apply these principles through the whole curriculum to prepare our pupils to serve in His Kingdom.
Melville-Knox Christian School Aberdeen was recently formed after a number of encouraging developments amongst leaders and members of Reformed and confessional churches in the city.
A series of preliminary discussions led to the establishment of Melville-Knox Christian School Aberdeen, in partnership with Melville-Knox Christian Schools. This included incorporating a very clear and Biblically robust constitution and the establishment of a school board of directors in this city. As the plans progressed, the building of Grace Reformed Church Aberdeen became an outstanding prospect as a meeting location for the school, after being agreed by the leadership of that fellowship. In addition to this, an application with Education Scotland was made and the relevant paperwork compiled and sent.
However, due to the outbreak of Covid-19, the exciting developments were halted, but only temporarily. In November 2020, a previously cancelled parent information event took place online and this provided interested parents the opportunity to hear about the school and its progress. As a result, a core group of interested parents are now part of a mailing list with many already expressing a great interest in sending their children to the school. This has been an important step.
We are therefore in a position to be advertising for a schoolteacher. We have had some interested parties but continue to pray and circulate the job advertisement, as this is undoubtedly another big step towards the formation of this school.
Our board have projected a possible launch date of August 2021 but this will depend on a number of factors, including the current government restrictions and the direction this moves in. We value your prayer and support for this work and if you have any questions or would like more information then please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
