gymnasticsWest Linton Primary School is a non-denominational school catering for pupils from nursery to primary seven. The catchment area includes the village of West Linton and several outlying villages and farms.

There are 9 classes plus the ELC, the school roll at present being 247. We also have 34 ELC pupils.

Our new school building was opened  on the 21st October 2013 and has a variety of facilities to cater for the growing numbers of pupils.

The nursery has a separate entrance to allow for easy drop off and pick up and caters for up to 40 children, 20 in the morning and 20 in the afternoon, 5 days per week.

In the school grounds there is a tarred playground and a grassy area, with a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) which is used in many ways.
