Slains School


Slains School serves the coastal village of Collieston and the surrounding agricultural area of Slains. We are situated in close proximity to the Sands of Forvie Nature Reserve and the estuary of the River Ythan.

The current school building was officially opened in 1967, replacing an older building on what is now the football pitch. An extension was added to the school in 2009 giving a total of three classrooms, a library area and a large hall with a stage.

The outdoor play area is spacious with a large paved area on two levels and an extensive grassed area which includes a football pitch and outdoor play equipment. A Wildlife Garden has also been created and is maintained by our Health and Wellbeing / Eco pupil working group. This provides an excellent resource for pupils to study wildlife in their local environment.

The School became an Eco School in 2012 when it gained its first Green Flag and achieved a second Green Flag in 2015. As part of this Slains has regularly participated in and won the Formartine Beginning to Blossom competition.

We regularly participate in the annual Royal Scottish Country Dance Society dancing festival which is held in Aberdeen and our School football team competes in a league with other nearby schools.

Our Primary 6 and 7 pupils have the opportunity to participate in annual residential trips which provide them with the opportunity to participate in a range of outdoor activities, work with pupils from other local primary schools and develop their leadership and team work skills. These pupils are also provided with the opportunity to engage in outdoor learning through participation in the John Muir Award.

Community links are a valued part of school life. The school is used for a range of community activities, including after school sports and activity clubs. Our Parent Forum support school improvement activities and raise additional funds to enhance the learning experiences for all pupils in the school.
