    Can anyone tell me, please, how many pupils a school has to have before it goes down to a one-class school? Does anyone know if all the councils are different?

    Used to be 19 pupils needed to have two teachers. Certainly in Aberdeenshire.

    Here its 20 to go to 2 teacher, 19 to be 1 teacher. Used to be over 19 to go up and under 15 to go down, so you had a little lee way before you lost a teacher.
