Kincardine O'Neil School

About our School

Our school is set amidst beautiful scenery along the banks of the River Dee, between Aboyne and Banchory taking in the village of Kincardine O’Neil and the surrounding areas of Dess and Potarch. Built over 100 years ago, the building is typical of many rural schools in Aberdeenshire. Although old, the building is in good repair. There are three classrooms, a general purpose hall, toilets, two offices and a staff room. Meals are cooked freshly each day in the kitchen, which also supplies lunches for nearby Finzean School and Ballogie Nursery. Outside, there is a hard playground area to the rear and side of the school with bike racks, climbing frames, timber play equipment and picnic bench seating area. There is also a football pitch complete with goal posts, as well as an extensive flower and vegetable garden with raised beds. The present roll is 34 pupils. The composite classes are Primary 1-3 and Primary 4-7. The school is part of the Aboyne schools cluster, feeding into Aboyne Academy for secondary education. Children participate in a range of extra curricular activities including Football Training, and a Lego Club. Kincardine O’Neil is a very welcoming and supportive community, and residents of the village are invited to a number of school events. We aim to ensure our children receive the highest quality education using the beautiful setting around them.
