Duncan Forbes Primary School opened in 1977 and is built on what was once the grounds of Culloden House, home of the Forbes family. There are presently 10 classes from Primary one to Primary seven and a nursery class which provides pre-school education for 3 and 4 year olds. Currently we have 240 pupils and 40 in the nursery class (20 in the morning and 20 in the afternoon).

The teaching areas are semi open plan with a number of classrooms sharing a communal working area. These shared open areas provide additional space which allows flexibility in our approach to learning and teaching. There are two main buildings plus an administration wing, a computer suite/GP Room and gym hall/dining room.

Children with Additional Needs are well supported in mainstream classes by Support for Learning Staff and input from specialist services. All staff actively promote positive behaviour and children’s
achievements are recognised and celebrated throughout the school.
