Drumoak School is a rural school serving a large area bounded by the Aberdeen to Torphins road to the north and the River Dee to the south; Crathes to the west and Peterculter to the east. Some pupils are part of the farming and country community, others have parents in the oil industry, while some parents are employed locally.

The main building of the school was opened in Victorian times and houses two classrooms, a G.P. room, cloakrooms, the resources area, office cum staffroom and kitchen servery. A temporary double portacabin was added in 1980 and replaced in 2000. Another single portacabin was installed in 1998 to accommodate the growing numbers. A new resource building has been created from an old water tower in 2000.

The school roll in 2006-2007 is 97.

There are 5 full time equivalent staff: Head Teacher, five class teachers supported by a Head Teacher Relief, a school administrator, a classroom assistant, 3 SFL auxiliaries and one lunchtime auxiliary. The P1/2 class is taught on a job-share basis.

Drumoak Primary is an associated primary of Banchory Academy and belongs to the Banchory LEaRN (Local Education and Recreation Network) along with Banchory, Crathes, Durris and Strachan Primaries. Almost all of our P7 pupils transfer to Banchory Academy for their secondary education.



  • To deliver a stimulating and balanced curriculum.

  • To raise standards in all areas of attainment.

  • To provide quality teaching and learning opportunities to meet the needs of the pupils.

  • To develop confidence and self-discipline in our pupils.

  • To promote a positive and welcoming environment for pupils and teachers where parents are encouraged as partners in their child’s education.

  • To maximise the facilities and resources of the school

  • To manage an effective school in the best interests of pupils, staff and parents.


While there is no compulsory school uniform we encourage children to wear.

  • Navy Drumoak sweatshirts

  • White shirt/white polo shirt

  • Navy / black trousers/jogging suits or

  • Navy skirts

The wearing of jeans, shellsuits and sports gear is discouraged. Valuables are best left at home.

No earrings should be worn in P.E. Children are asked to remove earrings and if they cannot do so they should tape them over. Chains and watches must be removed.

It is very important that all items are named because of the identical nature of clothing.

We use the church hall which is opposite the school for the teaching of Physical Education. It is very important that indoor trainers/black gym shoes are used.
