Local Schools

Ayton is served by Ayton Primary School, a 3 teacher school catering for P1-P7 pupils. There is no nursery at Ayton. The school shares its Headteacher, Mrs Louise Sanders, with Reston Primary School. 

The Friends of Ayton Primary School continue to raise substantial sums for the school from the community and, over the years, the support has been fantastic.
