About Our School

Fordyce Primary School BadgeFordyce Primary, built in 1924, is set amongst a picturesque historical village, 3 miles south-west of Portsoy and 11 miles south west of Banff.

Surrounding the school are extensive grounds incorporating a tarmac area and playing field which are used for many curricular areas, particularly physical education and Eco Schools activities. There is also a golf putting green, Willow Structure, raised flower and vegetable beds, adventure play trail area, recycled plastic bottle greenhouse, mini beast and wildlife area and a variety of mature and young trees.

Within the village there is a Joiner’s Workshop Museum and a village hall, where the bowling club, WRVS, badminton club and dancing lessons are held. A picturesque old churchyard, castle and play park completes the picture. There is a village Open Garden day held in July each year, which was featured in the BBC’s Beechgrove Garden programme.
