Choosing your child’s school and nursery is a huge decision, which is why we feel it’s so important for you to experience the school for yourself and see what a typical day entails at Cargilfield.

“Cargilfield is a special place: small enough to feel like an extension of my family but dynamic enough to offer the best all-round junior education in Scotland” – Rob Taylor, Headmaster at Cargilfield.

With small class sizes of up to 18 children, specialised subject teachers, sports every day, and a choice of over 70 club activities, your child will receive a comprehensive education with extended days. With no homework assigned to our Upper School pupils, family life can take centre stage in the home. Boarding opportunities are available.

Our Nursery setting, coupled with a broad range of experiences offered to the children, nurtures all aspects of your child’s development and instils enthusiasm, confidence, and happiness. Our modern, purpose-built Nursery comes with a vast, well-equipped garden, housing everything from a mud kitchen to a drum wall, and, of course, an outdoor stage. Children in our Nursery benefit from accessing the extensive school grounds and main school facilities, including specialist French and music teaching and various creative and sporting activities.

In September 2023, Cargilfield School received an outstanding report in all four inspection categories by Education Scotland, with an Excellent for “Raising Attainment and Achievement”; and Very good for “Leadership of change learning; for “Learning, teaching and assessment and for ensuring well-being, equality and inclusion”*.
