Abercromby Primary School is a non-denominational school serving the catchment area to the south of Tullibody. The school is part of the Lornshill Cluster and most of our pupils transfer to Lornshill Academy at the end of Primary 7, although some pupils go on to St Modan’s High as a matter of choice.
The school is located within Tullibody South Campus and is shared with St Bernadette’s Primary, Tulach Nursery and a Community Library.
Tullibody South Campus was officially opened in October 2019. This was an exciting time for our school and local community and we have made the most of all the opportunities afforded to us by working in close partnership with the other establishments in the campus and the excellent state of the art facilities.
The campus is light and airy and influenced by biophilic design. This incorporates nature in the interior and architectural design bringing the outdoors inside. There are numerous floor to ceiling windows throughout the campus which let in an abundance of light. Furniture in the campus is in keeping with this theme in its colour and design.
There are currently 14 classrooms over 2 floors with flexible learning areas for each stage.
We share some of the areas in the campus with the other establishments.
Children can enjoy lunch in the spacious dining hall, with its choice of different styles of tables, including café style booths.
We have a fabulous, well equipped and spacious 4 court gym hall which doubles up as an Assembly Hall and is a super space for performing and holding other events. There is also another smaller hall upstairs which is also used for PE.
We are the first campus in Scotland to have an immersive classroom. This classroom offers a full 360 degree floor to ceiling immersive experience for a whole class. There is a range of interactive experiences which support all areas of our curriculum.
We also have access to 3 general purpose rooms in the campus which are used.
Our experienced staff team are committed to taking the school forward on a journey of continuous improvement through critical reflection, and rigorous evaluation of our work, ensuring best practice.
There is a strong commitment to professional learning across the school, with all teachers participated in the Tapestry Masterclass and the Equitable Literacy Programme. Quite a few teachers and Senior Leaders have undertaken learning at Masters Level at Stirling University.
