New Broomhills Primary School

Broomhills Primary School is due to open in August 2020, in south east Edinburgh within the new housing development to the south of Frogston Road West. The school will have enough room for 420 pupils, alongside an early learning and childcare facility and inspiring outdoor spaces.

We will update this web-page as more information becomes available.
