Bailey, also 16, suffered serious injuries in an incident at Cults Academy, in the west of the city, at about 1.30pm on Wednesday.
He died a short time later at the city's Royal Infirmary, sparking a murder investigation.
Police Scotland today confirmed that a 16-year-old male has been "charged in relation to the death" of the schoolboy.
He is expected to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Friday.
