school building

Chapel of Garioch School is set amidst beautiful scenery near the foot of Bennachie, about five miles from Inverurie and twenty miles from Aberdeen.

Built over 100 years ago, the building is typical of many rural schools in Aberdeenshire and although old the building is in good repair. There are three classrooms, a general purpose room, cloakroom and toilets. A recent extension included a new staff room and an office for the Head Teacher. This released the original staff room as an office for the School Administrator.

Outside there is a hard playground area and a large playing field surrounded by pine trees. Meals are cooked in the kitchen.
