Welcome to Iona Primary School Website

Iona Primary School is situated on the beautiful island of Iona, in the Inner Hebrides on the West coast of Scotland. The building was erected in the early 1800 and consits of two rooms and a small office. At present eighteen  children attend the school ranging from Pre-5 to Primary 6. We are an expanding school and the roll is set to rise so that there will be 21 children in the building in the  2014/15 session.

There is one main teacher, Katharine Elwis, who is also the Head Teacher and we are lucky enough to have a specialist Art teacher, Barbara MacLean for half a day a week. Throughout the winter we have a 'Music Box' club run by a Music teacher and a rugby and football club run by parents.

We have a thriving Early Years Unit which is largely outdoors in the Summer months. The unit is run by Early Years specialist, Alison McKenzie. There are currently three children in the Unit. In the summer of 2015 an extension is being built to house the Unit.

We are very aware of our special environment and we have just been awarded our fourth Green Flag from Eco Schools!

The island attracts over 100.000 visitors from all over the world every Summer,  who come to see the Abbey built on the site where Saint Columba founded his church. Whilst the population of Iona currently stands at around 130.

We are very proud of our unique heritage here on Iona and we regularly take tours around the Abbey for Historic Scotland to tell other schoolchildren about this special place.
