About Foula

Our school serves the educational needs of children from nursery to P7 who live on the island of Foula.

Foula is 16 miles to the west of mainland Shetland.

It is one of Shetland’s most isolated and beautiful islands and we have the second highest sea cliff in Britain.

Foula has lots of Bonxies (Great Skua) and Maalies (Fulmar) and hills that are full of wild flowers. We feel very lucky to call Foula home!

Our school, built in 1992, consists of one light and airy main classroom, a nursery room, an office, kitchen facilities and the large community hall. We have a large and colourful outdoor space including the community playground, a solar panel array (part of the island renewable electricity scheme) and our Community Wildlife Garden. We also have a Poly-crub (polytunnel) funded by the Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) for our school and our community to share.
