About our school
Midmar School is situated in rural Aberdeenshire, approximately 18 miles west of Aberdeen between the B9119 Aberdeen to Tarland road and the A944 Aberdeen to Alford road. It is a rural school in a mainly agricultural area facing south to the Hill of Fare.
The school is set in extensive grounds which provide excellent scope for outdoor learning. These include a tarred front playground, a football pitch with floodlights, grassy play area, raised vegetable beds and a millennium garden with a greenhouse and willow tunnel. We also use the neighbouring wood for Forest School activities.
The main building dates from 1963 with an extension being added in 2013. The main building comprises of 2 classrooms, a General Purpose Hall, Servery, toilets, Office, Head Teacher’s Office and Staffroom. A non-fiction library is situated in the Hall with fiction libraries in both the Hall and corridor area. We also have a hut which at present is used as a third classroom. We currently have 34 pupils who are divided into three classes. These classes are P1-P3, P4-P5 and P6-P7. A Rising 5s Group meets in school on Monday mornings. We do not have a Nursery class, but children are zoned for Echt School Nursery. Children transfer to Alford Academy at the end of Primary 7.
