WELCOME TO AVIEMORE PRIMARY SCHOOL
OUR SCHOOL HISTORY
Aviemore Primary School was built nearly 40 years ago and replaced a school which was at Rothiemurchus just outside the village on the road to Cairngorm. The catchment area comprises Aviemore and surrounding district. The village of Aviemore has expanded over the years and the school building has been altered to accommodate these changes. The main school building comprises 8 classrooms including the Special Class for children with special needs, a multi-purpose room, administration block, dining hall and canteen, gymnasium, stage, library, medical room, kitchen, shower room, janitors office and staffroom. There are 2 demountable units at the rear of the school one of which houses the Nursery. The school playground is irregular in shape and comprises a tarmac area, grass area with climbing equipment for younger children and a large playing field. The school roll is currently 242 catering for all stages from nursery to P7.
