The school was founded in 1832. Until 1953, the school had been known as Rose’s Academical Institution, in honour of an early benefactor, Captain James Rose, RN. From 1953 onwards it has been known as Nairn Academy and was formerly housed in what is now Rosebank Primary School. By 1969, the school had grown to outstrip its former site and a new building was planned and subsequently erected at the western end of the town. The new school was first occupied in January 1976, and was formally opened in June that year.
In 2008, the school went under reconstruction for a new science facilities. There was also a large removal of asbestos from the building resulting in a closure of several weeks. The new science buildong offers students better access to studies and practical experimentation.
An extension was opened in August 1993 which provides specialized accommodation. Included in the area are toilet facilities for pupils with physical handicaps, a physiotherapy suite and teaching areas for pupils with severe or profound learning difficulties.
In October 2008 a new Support for Learning Base and Science Department was officially opened.
Nairn Academy has 4 associated Primary Schools:
Throughout the six years, from Secondary 1 to 6, the years are split into registration classes and further, each registration class is halved to a point class. For example, 1Y would have 1.1 and 1.2.
