About the school 

Aberfoyle School, the Kirk and the Schoolmaster’s House was built and opened in 1870. Further accommodation was built onto the school in 1906 and 1954 and in 1978 when a kitchen was also added. From its opening the school catered for the children in the area of all age groups until 1973 when it became only a primary school, with children transferring to McLaren High School, Callander. All children from Braeval in the east to Kinlochard in the west attend the school. In the autumn of 2008 the Horsa Hut was rebuilt and our nursery and P1/2 class now occupy this building. 

School inspections

Education Scotland has responsibility for evaluating the quality of pre-school education, all schools, teacher education, community learning and development, further education and local authorities. They also publish reports about services for children and evaluate child protection services.  

Catchment areas

Each school has it own geographic area called a catchment area. Normally, your child will attend your local catchment school. If you wish your child to attend a school other than the catchment school you are required to make a placing request
