Drumlithie is a friendly village with a new shop, hotel, bowling club and well used village hall.
The school is surrounded by a playground and has the added advantage of a large playing field within a close proximity. This playing field is used by the children during fine weather. An outdoor classroom area, the MOLE(Multipurpose Outdoor Learning Environment) Zone, provides a stimulating setting for learning. Pupils use a local woodland area on a regular basis for outdoor learning activities and gardening (school@theharvey).
Glenbervie School provides education for children aged 4-12 i.e. from Primary 1 to Primary 7. The school is normally a three-teacher primary school, but slight fluctuations in school roll can result in four classes.
On leaving Glenbervie School the pupils transfer to Mackie Academy, Stonehaven. Glenbervie School is part of the Stonehaven Children’s Services Network and works closely with the other 10 schools in the Network.
