Laurencekirk Network Schools

Mearns Academy is situated in the town of Laurencekirk in the heart of the Howe o’ the Mearns in Kincardineshire. It serves the population of the town and the surrounding rural area. Apart from Laurencekirk Primary School we draw pupils from our other associated primary schools at Auchenblae, Fettercairn, Luthermuir, Marykirk, Redmyre (Fordoun) and St Cyrus.

In addition, we receive pupils who live outwith our delineated zone whose parents exercise their rights under the Education (Scotland) Act 1981 (Parents’ Charter) and choose to send their children to Mearns Academy.
