Carsphairn Primary and Nursery School is a single-teacher school situated in the heart of the village. Carsphairn has provided education for its children for over 250 years and the small school is still thriving and very busy.
The school comprises one main classroom and a second multi-purpose room which doubles as dining room and nursery classroom for the afternoon. The school is part of the Glenkens Cluster of schools which also includes Kells Primary and Dalry Primary and Secondary Schools.
The Cluster Head Teacher is based at Dalry School, while the Principal Teacher at Carsphairn is responsible for the day-to-day running of the school.
The Principal Teacher is in class for the major part of the week, and a second teacher is in class for the remainder of the week, offering children the opportunity to enjoy different teaching approaches, which is important in a small school.
Small schools offer many advantages to children and their education:
We are proud of our small school!
