Toward Primary School is situated on the Cowal Peninsula, seven miles south west of Dunoon. The school is situated by the shore and is surrounded by farm land and commands superb views over the Firth of Clyde towards Bute and the hills of Arran beyond.The school’s catchment area stretches from the village of Toward right up the east side of Loch Striven. A significant proportion of the school population is as a result of placing requests some from as far away as Sandbank.The building dates from 1875 with extensions added in 1977 and 1979. The original structure has been converted into a kitchen and dining area with the extensions providing two modern classrooms, which can be joined by opening partitions. There is a tarred playground and we have recently developed a small garden. There is a grass playing-field next to the school which we can access.
