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 Andrew's RC Primary School is situated in the Midlothian town of Gorebridge with easy access of the A7 and on major bus routes. The school, purpose built in 2004, benefits from a recent extension which affords a much larger nursery, a protected outdoor space for the early years and a larger ASD base. The school comprises a morning and afternoon nursery with capacity for 20 children in each, seven primary classes and an ASD base with capacity for 10 children. At St Andrew's we aim to create a welcoming, secure and caring environment in which children, staff and parents feel valued. We provide a broad, well balanced curriculum which encourages children to achieve their full potential.
As a member of the St Davids Catholic school cluster we aim to promote a community of faith and learning, providing the highest quality of education. All staff appointed are expected to support the aims, mission, values and ethos of the school.
Applications are invited from enthusiastic professionals who have the vision and energy to sustain and promote the current standards of achievement and ensure the continued development and progress of the school.
