About Our School

There has been a school in Corstorphine since 1646 when it was founded by the first Lord Forrester. The existing buildings are close to where the original school was built.

We are well versed in the traditional Scottish virtues of tolerance and consideration for others; regard for learning; respect for others and ourselves; and hard work.

At present we have fifteen primary classes, one morning, and one afternoon nursery group. We offer specialist teaching in Physical Education and Music. Instrumental Tuition is available for older children and there are a variety of after-school clubs.

Most classes are housed in a Victorian building which has been added to from time to time in a fairly random way. This makes for an interesting interior, with traditional classroom units. Two classes, usually of Pr 3, are located in a transportable unit in the playground. The nursery class, with its own garden and play area, is also housed in a transportable unit.

We are continually looking for ways to improve and enhance our school environment. In recent times we have created a number of outdoor games activities for pupils to enjoy. Two recent improvements have been the installation of our Jungle Gym and a new Animal Wall in the early years playground.


The PTA support the work of the school by their endeavours in fund-raising to buy equipment which could not otherwise be purchased. In recent years they have supplied Smartboards, computer systems, and peripherals, musical instruments, recording equipment and technology material in addition to resourcing our playground games equipment.

Outfits and kit for our various sports teams have also been provided.

All parents are warmly welcomed to join in PTA activities.

Every year the PTA organise and run a Christmas Fair, which is usually very well supported by parents and friends.

Social and fund-raising events for adults and children are held regularly throughout the school year.

Recent events have included a car boot sale, adults quiz night and a number of year group parties/discos.

The staff and pupils alike appreciate the efforts made by the PTA on our behalf.

The PTA Committee is presently Chaired by, Nicola Currie-Mullan - Vice Chair, Allan Kitching.
