Tomnacross Primary School was built in 1875 and many generations of
local families have graced its doors. The school has grown with the
village of Kiltarlity and now offers a wonderful educational environment
housed in a mixture of refurbished and new build facilities.
The school is of a traditional design with a very modern extension and
all is situated in spacious grounds with a sports field, grass and
tarmac play areas and shelters. There are four classrooms in the school
with the fifth being used as an ICT learning base. There is also an
external building which is the music room and also serves as a resource
area and Library area. The nursery is housed opposite the main school
building in a separate unit. All rooms are in good condition, well
equipped and have open outlooks. There is an excellent hall which was
only officially opened in 2010 with a range of P.E. equipment, stage
facility, lighting and sound equipment.
All the classrooms are well resourced with teaching materials and have
areas set aside for class libraries. All classrooms also have computers
School meals are cooked on the premises in the very modern School
Kitchen and served in the adjacent PE hall.
Tomnacross School strives to be a happy school with high standards of
education. Our pupils are encouraged to be caring, polite and
respectful. The education offered is a blend of the best of traditional
and up-to-date methods. Language and mathematics are crucially
important in the primary school curriculum and achievement in these
subjects is stressed. A wide range of activities are offered in the
school during the school session and achievement in subjects such as
music and sport is widely encouraged. School uniform is
recommended and is worn on a regular basis by almost all pupils. This
adds to the sense of community within the school and reduces the need
for unnecessary expenditure by parents to meet changes in fashion! The
parents and the Parent Council provide very good support for the school.
