Lochdonhead Primary School is a co-educational school, situated at the head all of a sea loch and enjoying superb views from every aspect. Accommodation provides two classrooms, staff room, office, kitchen/dining room and entrance hall. The beautiful outdoor environment is used regularly by the school for learning and teaching including our beach school.

Lochdonhead Primary School has a welcoming and friendly ethos, the result of close co-operation of the staff, very supportive Parent Councils and a close involvement of pupils, parents and the wider community. Positive relationships are encouraged and staff and pupils share a sense of belonging, pride in the schools and mutual respect. The children are encouraged to respect the opinions of others and to confidently express their own feelings and thoughts. We have a happy, positive learning ethos with high expectations of pupil behaviour.


Lochdonhead and Ulva Primary Schools are partner schools. The schools have excellent relationships with the communities. We were delighted to achieve our UNICEF Silver Rights Respecting School Award in November 2019.
