What The Good Schools Guide says..
Music and drama outstanding. As ever. Stunning Tom Fleming Centre (FP, actor, broadcaster) carved out of old – rather grand, but past its sell by date – Victorian assembly room. Brilliant scheme: the architects dug down into the cellars. Original entrance to the great outside is now a delightful Romeo and Juliet balcony, floor level in the old hall, now half way up the wall.
What the school says...
We believe this is a time when children should not lose the joy of discovering the world outside - or the potential within themselves. Here your child will be nurtured to become a happy and confident young person. Girls and boys will learn that if they always do their best they can be proud of themselves and their achievements. They will develop all aspects of their personality, preparing them for the next stage of their education with grace and integrity. ...Read more

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since September 2016, Mike Kane, prevously head of upper school at Stewart's Melville College.
Automatic from nursery (where you should register at birth), otherwise by assessment. Oversubscribed: hugely so age 4/5; not quite so blistering further up; waiting lists throughout. Priority to siblings – as always – but occasional places available at every level. And, unlike some other independent schools, waiting lists have not disappeared during the economic turndown. Roll is currently the highest in history. From age 6 up, assessment for all, plus reports from previous school. Main entry point after Primary 1 is at Primary 6 - very few places available at Primary 7.
