What says..

Enormous. Over 1250 girls and boys in total. 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.

We believe this is a time when children should not lose the joy of discovering the world outside - or the potential within themselves.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2016, Mike Kane, previously 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.
