Lochgelly West Primary School serves the North and West area of Lochgelly in West Fife. The Infant Department dates back to 1883, while the main part of the building was added in approximately 1916.

There are seven classes in the school. Four other classrooms within the school have been set up; one to accommodate the Nursery which takes three and four year olds, one is a 'Living Room', one is a Resource/Tutorial room and one is a Computer Suite. There is a Support for Learning base and a Library/Tutorial room. The large central Hall is used for P.E, Assemblies, concerts etc. We are fortunate to have a very good school kitchen serving a variety of meals in a separate dining room. This facility, whilst catering for a wide range of dietary requirements also promotes healthy eating and life style. Cultural diversity is reflected in the menu.

A large playground surrounds the school. A wildlife garden and grassy area have been created through Grounds for Learning. The overall outdoor appearance has been improved and also provides a more interesting play area for the children. The playground project is ongoing, further developments are in the pipeline. A local park is also used for sports and football
