Pilrig Park Special School, situated in the Leith area of Edinburgh, delivers education for secondary school pupils experiencing complex long-term additional support needs from S1 to S6. We aim to provide appropriate opportunities for all our young people to achieve within a nurturing and stimulating environment. The school works effectively with partners and the wider community to ensure that every pupil has flexible, personalised pathways to develop knowledge, understanding and skills for learning, life and work.

We have an active Parent/Carer Council who support us with our work. Another key strength of the school is our multi-agency approach to supporting our learners. Staff work closely with educational psychologists, the additional support for learning service, the CAMHS learning disability team, social work, allied health professionals and third-sector partners in order to meet the needs of all our pupils. Through our positive, empowering and inclusive ethos, we are committed to enabling our young people to be the best they can be by raising attainments and promoting achievements. This aspirational vision is shared by our families and our community and is very much part of our everyday practices.
