Welcome to Braidburn School

Situated in the south-west of Edinburgh, Braidburn School provides a supportive learning environment for learners with additional support needs aged 2½ to 18 years old.

Braidburn benefits from on-site multi-disciplinary therapy and medical teams in addition to our education staff. This helps our learners achieve their full potential.

Education Scotland Visit


As many of you in our school community know we had a ‘continuing engagement’ visit from Education Scotland in June 2014. This visit went very well and the inspection team gave some excellent feedback on how we are progressing as a school. Most importantly, the team felt that they did not need to come back in connection with the inspection. You can read the full letter by clicking here.

We would like to take this opportunity thank everyone for their continued support and hard work.
