Welcome to Durness Primary School
Durness is situated in the north west of the Scottish mainland. Durness is made up of several townships and the main areas of employment here are tourism, local services, fish farming and crofting.
We are fortunate to live amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in the country and the children at the school have this as a backdrop to their education. We have the outdoor classroom on our doorstep and make full use of this to enhance the children’s learning experiences. The school has two classrooms, a nursery room, a dining room and kitchen and is surrounded by an interesting playground with features such as climbing frames, a play house, a garden area, a rocky hill, painted games and much more. There are currently 17 pupils. The school makes much use of the local modern village hall for P.E. and any events which require a large indoor space.
Although Durness is a place where traditional values are very much appreciated and valued, we aim to provide an education for the 21st century. Our school is well resourced and staff are keen to provide an education that is varied, stimulating and aims to help all the pupils achieve their best.
Education is a partnership between home and school, and we aim to provide a safe, happy environment which will help your child to face the challenges of the future.
