So loons and quines we think  this could  be something good for you to do on your own page. Find out the history of Portsoy School – Who was the first headmaster? What year did it open? Is there still a boys door and girls door and what was the reason for that ?

I can remember when it was a high school and where the playgroup is held used to be a cooking room. I think the older ones moved to Banff Academy around the late 60′s. Hope you have fun finding out about the history of Portsoy School.
