East Wemyss Primary School was opened in 1906 as a Primary and Secondary School. It is now a primary school with a nursery incorporated and is a focal point in the village as well as being a listed building.

It is built on three levels: basement, ground and first floors. The ground and first floors are built around a large central hall. There is an Environmental Centre in the basement, run by the 'Save Wemyss Ancient Caves Society.'

The aim of our school is to provide a secure and caring environment in which we will help children to develop the skills which will enable them to enjoy a happy and constructive school life in order to take their place and play their part in society in their adult life.

This term the school has after school / lunchtime clubs: recorder, guitar, gardening and cycle training.  It also has a community use for country dancing one evening a week from the end of September to the end of  March. There is a breakfast club five mornings a week  from 8.25 - 8.55am which provides a  breakfast for all pupils at a cost of 50p.

The school is well supported by a School Council, School Forum, parents and many others who live locally. We occasionally have events in the  evening such as school shows, open evenings and discos.

Throughout the year our children take part in local festivals: Scottish country dancing, creative dance, music and drama as well as going on a variety of educational visits. Our Primary 7 's spend a week/weekend at Ardroy Outdoor Education Centre each year.

We welcome all parents into our school throughout the year.
