The school has two main open areas with classrooms clustered around them. There is one area for infants and one for junior and senior pupils.

The school has an ICT suite which has been installed for some time.
St Mungo’s is situated in Alloa South and is currently surrounded by open park land.
The school has extensive playing fields with benches for pupils to sit. The school garden is established and is situated at the front of the school.
New housing has been built beside the school in Alloa Park and a road giving access to the school is currently being built.

The school has two associated secondary schools - St Modan's High School in Stirling and Alloa Academy. Both schools provide good liaison programmes for pupils to ease transition from primary to secondary schools.
Pupils in P6 & P7 visit St Modan’s for a 4 week block each year where pupils can enjoy sessions in Music, Art, Science, etc. Alloa Academy has a range of activities for pupils too including a CSI activity, a learning festival, an activity day in June and visits from secondary teachers.
