Projected school roll for 2019-20: 27
Nethermill Primary is set in a quiet country location just outside Nethermill village. It is only a five minute drive from Lochmaben. Our Partnership school is Johnstonebridge Primary. Nethermill Primary is a fantastic place for children to learn and offers excellent outdoor facilities.
Our school is the heart of our community and we have a fantastic relationship with members of our community who come and support us at various school events including our school BBQ, Halloween Party, Burns Supper and Ceilidh, they also come and engage in activities with pupils in school.
We are honoured to have fantastic teaching staff at Nethermill and we don’t want to loose a valuable member of staff if we dropped down to a one teacher school as a result of the recent council budget. We strongly feel this would have a detrimental effect to our children’s education.
