Crossmichael Primary serves the villages of Crossmichael, Parton, Glenlochar, Laurieston and surrounding areas. The school has four classrooms with capacity for 99 pupils, including a newly appointed portacabin. We also have a large playground containing a community play park. Crossmichael Community Woodland is behind the school and is accessed frequently for outdoor learning. It has a school kitchen where meals are freshly prepared every day and a PE hall/ dining room.
Gelston Primary School serves the rural communities of Gelston and Rhonehouse. The main school building was refurbished a few years ago and consists of two classrooms with capacity for 50 pupils altogether. There is a portacabin on site and a large playground with a small garden area and a climbing frame. We have a school kitchen which lies a few steps away from the main building and freshly prepared meals are cooked on site. Pupils walk down to the Village Hall for PE lessons and assemblies.
The schools have been working in partnership since 2012 and the current Headteacher, Miss Mary Cruickshanks has been there since October 2018.
