The school itself is situated in the village of Craigellachie, overlooking the River
Spey. Formal education has been provided here since 1870 and in our present
building for over 100 years.
Although a listed building, the inside has been
modernised and equipped to meet the needs of today's curriculum. This has also been
helped by our extra accommodation in the playground, which provides a P6/7
classroom and a room for expressive arts.
Our accommodation has been enhanced by
the addition of the Spey room. This room provides a quiet teaching and learning area
for individuals and small groups. We are continually developing our grounds to
increase opportunities and facilities for learning, socialising and relaxing.
moment the Village Hall, local amenities and Speyside High School are used for a
variety of curricular and social purposes.
