Strone Primary School is situated in the village of Strone on the Cowal peninsula, eight miles from Dunoon.
The school serves the villages of Ardentinny, Blairmore, Strone and part of Kilmun. The catchment area stretches from Tea Caddy Lane in Kilmun to Sligrichan which is past the last farm in Ardentinny.
Strone Primary is in an elevated position and has magnificent views of Loch Long, the Firth of Clyde and the Holy Loch.
The school is over 40 years old and has four classrooms and a large hall that serves as an assembly hall, a gymnasium and lunch hall. Two extensions were added to the school and these provide a gym storage cupboard, office and staff room.
Strone Primary is a very well resourced school. The ratio of computers is 1:2. There is a very active and supportive Parent Council. We have a Pupils' Committee and Eco Group. The pupils are polite, well behaved, enthusiastic and motivated. The school ethos is commented on by everyone who visits the school. The school has a house system with captains and vice captains. All the staff are committed and dedicated to providing an excellent learning experience for the pupils. There is a real sense of teamwork. The Head Teacher encourages staff by a collaborative, collegiate management style.
HM Inspectorate of Education (HMIE) inspects and reports on the quality of education in pre-school centres, primary schools, secondary schools, special schools, community learning and development services, colleges, and residential educational provision.
