Full Description

Current primary school. The Parish and Innes schools amalgamated, with Innes school becoming the junior department of the Auldearn Public school, but by 1895 there was not enough provision. The older part of the current primary school was built by Mr Whittet, architect of Elgin in 1895 and formally opened in 1896. It consisted of four large rooms. In 1975 a large dinner hall and general purposes room was added. Later temporary classrooms have also been added.
