Dunbar Primary School
One school on two sites
Dunbar Primary School is split over 2 campuses and due to the main railway line it is much easier to cycle from one campus to the other than it is to drive. The school has 2 bikes which the teachers use to shuttle from one site to the other, and pupils usually walk.

Lochend Campus (P4 – P7), Kellie Road, Dunbar, EH42 1XB. Tel No: 01368 860 997
