Portlethen Academy has seen off stiff competition from schools across Scotland to collect an award for its work with local employers.
The school will now attend a national final in London next month run by the British Chamber of Commerce.
The school was winner of the Chamber of Commerce Education Business Partnership Award for Scotland and recently collected the award at an event hosted by Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce.
Chief Executive of Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce Robert Collier said: “This award recognises schools and further education colleges that engage effectively with business and Portlethen Academy should be justly proud of its achievement.
Head teacher Neil Morrison said: “Our partnership, the school and wider community are proud of the strong links we have created.
“Parents are aware that their children gain an excellent awareness of the world of work through the strength of the links we have made here at the school and I thank our partners for helping us gain this award and look forward to the final.”
