Hello and welcome to Georgetown Primary School.
Georgetown Primary School was opened in 1974, to serve the rapidly growing private housing development of Georgetown that lies to the South East of the town of Dumfries. The school caters for stages Nursery to P7 i.e. ages 3-12. It is a non-denominational school with a roll of approximately 325 plus 50/50 Nursery provision. We also have the Queensberry Learning Centre for pupils with severe and complex learning difficulties.
The school itself is of a split level construction. A multi-purpose hall gives access to two large open areas each consisting of a central activity space. The open areas in turn give access to class bays, four in the infant wing and nine in the upper school. The school also has a library containing a wide range of fiction and non-fiction works. There are also a number of 'quiet' rooms for music, Learning Support, meetings etc. We also have an ICT suite with 18 networked P.C.s, children also have access to wireless 20 laptops and ipads.
Externally there are extensive areas of grass and two areas of Tarmac close to the school. There is also a soft play area for the Nursery and Queensberry and we have 2 adventure play trails. We have a much admired sensory garden and outside classroom area. A branch library has been built next to the school grounds and a large car park, which is out of bounds to pupils, serves the needs of staff and visitors to the school.
