Aitkenbar Primary is situated in the Bellsmyre area of Dumbarton.  It was built in 1959 and originally had over 400 pupils. There are large playgound areas, gardens and green spaces surrounding the school.  Most of the children attending Aitkenbar are from Bellsmyre although the catchment area extends to Garshake and parts of High Overtoun.  We said goodbye to the old school in June 2016.

In August 2016 we moved into a brand new co-located campus with St Peter's Primary School and Bellsmyre ELCC.  Although the two schools operate independently, we share the facilities and the children play and eat together as well as sharing many learning opportunities. 



The school has a warm, friendly atmosphere and a strong community ethos.  We provide a rich learning environment and have high aspirations for all our pupils.
