Hazlehead Academy is a city comprehensive secondary school situated around 3 miles west of Aberdeen city centre. The school has four main feeder primary schools which are Airyhall Primary School, Fernielea Primary School, Hazlehead Primary School and Kingsford Primary School - in addition to this, pupils who have been part of a Gaelic unit at Aberdeen's Gilcomstoun Primary School can transfer to Hazlehead, which offers Gaelic as part of the curriculum.
Hazlehead Academy was founded in 1969, when Aberdeen Academy moved from its former city centre site to the suburb of Hazlehead. The school can trace its history back to 1894, when it was founded as the Central Public School. At this stage, it was a school for advanced education, and accepted pupils from all over the city. this role was reflected in a name change to The Central Higher School. In 1924, the school became open to all pupils as a general secondary school, and was once more renamed as The Central Secondary School. In 1954, the name was changed for the last time before it moved, and it became Aberdeen Academy.
