What says..

Fun outdoor play area bung-full of interesting and irresistible bits and pieces. Plenty of inventive stuff to play with - hoses, bits of wood, tyres, crates, tunnels and puddles; the children were happily guddling around at the time of our visit. Impressive Tom Fleming Centre for Performing Arts, a renovated Victorian assembly hall, seats up to 800.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2016, Mike Kane, previously head of upper school at Stewart's Melville College. ‘He has a great manner and really cares about the children’. He is well liked by all parents we spoke to. ‘He looks out for every child….is intelligent, measured, astute but down to earth with good values.' His background is in teaching English and he still enjoys taking the occasional lesson with P7 pupils. His previous role gives him a good understanding of the transition from junior to senior school.


Automatic entrance to the school from nursery for the majority. Nursery places are offered by date of application (many parents register their child at birth). Some priority given to siblings and the need to ensure a balance of boys and girls (the school is often ‘boy heavy’).
