Our School and Staff

Newtonhill Primary School serves the coastal villages of Newtonhill and Muchalls and the surrounding rural areas of Cammachmore, Cookney and Bridge of Muchalls. Housing continues to grow, and we are also currently serving the new village of Chapelton, which will eventually have its own school. The school’s current roll is about 300 children including nursery pupils. On leaving Newtonhill Primary School the pupils transfer to Portlethen Academy. Newtonhill School is part of the Portlethen Community School Network and we work closely with the other 5 schools in the network.

Newtonhill Primary School is staffed by full-time, part-time and job-sharing teachers, with Early Years Practitioners in the nursery.  Visiting teachers take classes for art, languages, science and outdoor learning, and music instructors visit to deliver a range of instrumental tuition. The Head Teacher is non class-committed.  There is one Depute Head Teacher.  Our nursery is managed by the Early Years Senior Practitioner.
