Anna Ritchie School


History of the Anna Ritchie School

The Anna Ritchie School was established in 1963 for the education of children with learning difficulties. Deaconess Anna Ritchie, who lived in the village of Old Deer, had a great interest in such children. She encouraged the foundation of this school which was named in her honour.

Aims and Values

Pupils attend the Anna Ritchie School because they have a range of difficulties which affect their learning.

We aim:
  • To devise and implement an individual education programme which will enable each child to achieve his or her full potential in communication, numeracy and independent living skills.
  • To create a positive learning and teaching experience which promotes good behaviour and motivates the individual to achieve success, increase confidence and raise self esteem.
  • To value and support all pupils and ensure their access to a curriculum appropriate to their needs.
  • To prepare pupils to become responsible citizens by promoting the development of life skills and positive attitudes, working in partnership with parents/guardians and other agencies.
  • To equip pupils with foundation skills and expectations necessary to contribute to a changing society.


It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that pupils come to school clean and tidy.
We have school sweatshirts and polo shirts available in navy and red (the school colours) with the school logo embroidered on each.

These may be ordered through the school or bought directly from:-

Buchan Embroidery, Merchant Street Peterhead Tel:  01779 480900.

We ask parents to encourage pupils to wear these or a plain coloured sweatshirt. Trousers, jogging bottoms or skirts must be dark in colour. Clothing should be clearly marked with your child’s name to avoid confusion. Shiny tracksuits, popper trousers and football tops are not considered suitable school wear!

Forms for Clothing Grants are available from the school office.


Residential Trips

The school is fortunate in having members of staff who are willing to take the responsibility of accompanying pupils to various localities involving overnight stays.   These events have proved to be valuable both socially and educationally.

Educational Outings

The school has its own minibus.   This is used for visits and outings planned by teachers to fit in with the class curriculum.

Staff who drive the minibus have passed an additional driving test in accordance with Aberdeenshire Educational Authority’s rules.

Riding for the Disabled Association (Buchan Branch)

Horse riding lessons are available to some pupils as part of their Individual Education Programme. Further information is available from the Head Teacher.

Football Outings and Training

The football team have begun playing against local schools and have been fairly successful. The players train once a week and look forward to the outings and all that that  entails.
