Update January 2018: The City of Edinburgh Council is currently examining, and consulting on, the provision of secondary education in West Edinburgh. A new secondary school will be built to serve pupils in North West Edinburgh, including Ratho Station, Newbridge and Kirkliston at a site yet to be determined, with Kirkliston the likely favourite of the City Council.
All our Primary Schools have Nursery Classes (Early Years Provision). A new library/under 5s centre is currently being erected on the site in School Wynd formerly occupied by the library. This facility will be attached to the new library building.
