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.
St Margaret’s RC Primary School is a denominational school situated in the town of Loanhead near Edinburgh. Our school has a long tradition of serving both the local and extended community and we are proud to welcome Roman Catholic pupils as well as pupils of other or no faith.
We offer our learners, in partnership with their parents, opportunities to grow and learn together as part of the school family. We are proud of our unique identity, the care and compassion we show each other and our commitment to excellent learning and teaching for each individual pupil.
St Margaret’s Primary School is distinctive because its mission is to develop as a community of faith and learning, providing the highest quality of education, and offering formation through the promotion of Gospel values, through celebration and worship, and through service to the common good. Everything that happens in our should be determined by this mission.
We hope your visit to our website http://stmargarets.mgfl.net gives you a sense of the caring, nurturing community that our staff team, our learners, our parents and carers and our many community partners have helped St Margaret’s R.C. Primary School to become.
