Rayne North School was opened in 1876 and at one time was a junior secondary. This has meant that we have always had plenty of space in which the children and staff can work. At present we have three class rooms, a large gymnasium/hall and a general purpose/dining room. We also have a large playing field, an eco-garden and two tarred playground areas
The school is situated approximately 8 miles north of Inverurie, in the Central area of Aberdeenshire. The main village in our catchment area is Meikle Wartle but other districts include Tocher, Kirkton of Rayne and Warthill.
Currently, we have three classes.
