Longniddry Primary is a non-denominational, co-education school situated on the coastline of East Lothian.  For session 2022/23 we have 8 classes and a Nursery.

Due to our increasing school roll we have a number of straight and composite classes.

Composite classes are organised strictly on an age basis in accordance with East Lothian Council’s policy.  This policy does not affect the educational provision for the children since each child is educated in accordance with his/her needs.

The semi open plan extension, accommodating the majority of the school, was opened in 1978.  At this time the existing school building was refurbished to accommodate mainly administration offices and dining facilities.

Our school is on two levels and has been adapted to provide access for children with disabilities including toilet facilities.

The school is used by pupils after school hours for extra-curricular activities.  An after school club and Breakfast Club operates in our dining hall.  This is run independently by ELOSCN (East Lothian Out of School Care Network)

  1. Just wondering when the original part of the present school was built/opened.
    I know it was extended in 1978 but I think it is from mid 30’s?
    Reason for asking is my father attended from 1936 approx. and just trying to piece together some family history.


    Thanks in advance

  2. Hello Mr Wood

    I think the original part of the school building was built in 1931 and the extension added in the 1970’s. Good luck with your research.

    Best wishes
