You can view the latest HMIe inspection report for Cargenbridge Primary School which is designed to show how well children are being educated and to help the school to improve.
The school, which opened in 1959, has just celebrated it 50th birthday by moving into a new building designed by Dumfries and Galloway architects.
All class bases and nursery have the newest technology with double exit doors to the play area. There is a library, community room and Multi Use Games Area. The nursery have their own external play area. A sensory garden has also been included in the landscaped outdoor area. All meals are cooked on the premises in the new state of the art kitchen.
The catchment area stretches from Mabie forest on the New Abbey Road to Lochanhead on the Dalbeattie Road with those children who live in outlying areas being transported via the school taxi service.
Although classed as a rural school, being situated on the outskirts of town means that we enjoy the best of both worlds! We can maintain small classes in an intimate, friendly environment but we have all the facilities of the town on our doorstep.
