Welcome to Torbain Primary School

Torbain is one of the largest primary schools in Fife.  The school is split site with a single storey infant/nursery building and an open plan 3 storey block.
At Torbain our vision is to create a culture that successfully contributes to the development of skills  and qualities needed for lifelong learning – not just focussing on the academic.  We want children to expereince a ‘quality education’ which in turn produces young people who are ‘enterprising, friendly, moral and imaginative.’
“Intelligence plus character…
that is the goal of true education”
Martin Luther King
The school has excellent links with the community and offers a range of academic and active learning after school clubs, working in conjunction with the active schools co-ordinator.  We work in partnership with health professionals, the Educational Psychologist and the Supporting Learners Service.
Early Learning and Childcare Setting: Torbain Nursery is accommodated in the infant building.  The Nursery consists of three playrooms and a well-proportioned garden adjoined to the building allowing children free access.   The Nursery makes good use of the local community including the nearby woods where the children benefit from Forest Kindergarten activities.


We have a highly committed staff team who engage in professional development and involve themselves in leading curricular work and who contribute greatly to the wider life of the school through e.g. running of clubs / leading pupil groups and leading change and improvement.  We have key members of staff who are involved in work across the council e.g. HWB, Train the Trainer, and EYOs / Support Staff leading Outdoor Learning.
