Currently, Midlothian has 6 secondary schools, 32 primary schools (19 of which have nurseries) and 2 stand alone nursery schools. Our special school, Saltersgate, provides support for children with a range of physical, social, emotional, behavioural and learning difficulties. The schools range in size from our smallest primary school with around 20 children to our largest secondary with over 1200 pupils. We have a diverse range of school catchments, from rural to urban settings. We are fortunate to have a growing number of new build schools, with 15 of our primary schools and 1 secondary having been built within the last 10 years and several new builds planned.
Gorebridge is a lively Primary School situated in the village of Gorebridge. Currently we are a 14 class school with a 50/50 nursery. The children play a very active role in the life and work of the school.
Gorebridge Primary is a new community school and as such we aim to develop and promote links within the community. We believe that our B.O.A.T.S. (Bring our adults to School) events have been one of the successful ways in which parents and carers can become involved in how and what our pupils are learning. As a health-promoting school we place great importance on developing the social, emotional and physical health of every member of our school community and place great emphasis on positive behaviour and relationships.
Our school mission statement - ‘Caring, preparing for life’ encapsulates our ethos and family values. We aim to prepare our pupils for life in the 21st Century in a nurturing and caring environment. We aspire to support our pupils in being all they can be and fulfil their potential through their achievements both in and out of school. We recognise and celebrate achievements of all pupils and members of our ‘school family’.
