Port Ellen Primary School and Pre 5 Unit is situated on an elevated site at the edge of Port Ellen village. Port Ellen serves the southern part of the Island of Islay and the school catchment area includes the villages of Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg as well as an extensive rural area. The majority of our pupils live within a mile of the school.
The school is a two storey building and was opened in the mid seventies to replace the old village schools of Ardbeg and Port Ellen. There are five classrooms – 3 semi open plan and 2 enclosed. There is an ICT room and libraries for infants and juniors/seniors. The large assembly hall is used for physical education, assemblies, concerts, etc. The dining area and stage are adjoining to the assembly hall. The school also has a Pre 5 Unit.
