Opening in 1876, Leith Walk Primary School is one of the oldest primary schools in Edinburgh. We are located in a busy city centre location and our building is listed. We currently have 245 pupils in the primary school.We also have both a morning and an afternoon nursery class, each of which can have a maximum of 60 children, including provision for some eligible 2-year-olds.

The corridors and the classrooms offer a bright, attractive environment for our pupils. The building is subject to continuous on-going improvement of facilities. In addition to a full complement of classrooms, the school is well provided with rooms for other specialist purposes. There are currently separate rooms for music, drama, support services such as Support for Learning and English as an Additional Language, a hall which is used for Physical Education and Assemblies, and a library.

The school is well resourced and enjoys extensive links with the local and wider community. We enjoy a successful partnership with our Parent Council which is open to all parents.
