Our Facilities

Our Facilities

All our educational and sporting facilities are located on our single, easily accessible campus where all our pupils learn, play and grow together.

They enjoy the freedom of the beautiful green spaces that wrap around the campus whether that means playing in the playground or eating lunch with friends on the grass.

Preschool 

We believe our children should be able to go on adventures every day and our stunning Preschool classrooms are flexible, collaborative places to learn with outdoor spaces that promote exploration and discovery. 

Junior School

Our Junior School provides a range of facilities to support the learning and development of each pupil. It is a safe, comfortable yet vibrant place with indoor and outdoor spaces that encourage both independence and constructive play. The library and informal learning spaces in the John Martin Building support pupils in acquiring good habits for study and collaboration with others.

Senior School

In the Senior School bright and spacious classrooms are complemented by well equipped laboratories and a variety of other specialist learning areas, well resourced libraries and informal spaces.

Our Senior School Assembly Hall is one of Edinburgh’s finest performance venues with a heritage that includes hosting some of the world’s greatest musicians. However, it is mainly the place where our community meets each week, where we share ideas, music and drama and where we celebrate the many achievements of our pupils.

Sports Facilities 

Our Centre for Sport boasts four sports halls, a fitness suite with cardio and resistance training equipment and a 23.5 metre swimming pool. Outside, the famous Myreside Grandstand pitch sits at the centre of a range of other excellent grass pitches, astroturf pitches, tennis courts and cricket nets. The Myreside Pavilion provides social facilities for the school and wider community and houses some excellent squash courts. The nearby boathouse is the home of our Boat Club.

The Arts, Design and Technology 

Creativity is a crucial component of our pupils’ education and purpose-built facilities support their enjoyment and achievement in music, art, design and technology.

The Music School with its distinctive roof is a wonderful venue for all kinds of music learning and performance, whilst the Drama Department provides specialist performance studios and  is the focus for drama in the Senior School. The Junior School benefits from performance spaces and dedicated music rooms at the very heart of the new John Martin Building.

An attractive exhibition gallery lies at the centre of our Art School which also has dedicated areas for pottery,  sculpture, textiles, painting and photography. 

Our Design, Technology and Engineering Department has excellent facilities where pupils can develop skills using a wide range of specialist equipment ranging from a chip forge to the latest in computer-aided fabrication technology. The emphasis here as elsewhere is to liberate the creativity of the individual to identify innovative design solutions.
