We are a thriving and active rural school situated in the heart of Greenlaw where there is a long lasting legacy of education in this ancient former county town of Berwickshire dating back to the 1500’s. Today, there are excellent road links to rest of the Borders, Edinburgh, Berwick Upon Tweed and Newcastle and a growing community with a genuine feeling of belonging where everyone is welcomed as part of a supportive and caring community.

We currently have three composite classes, split as follows: Primary 1/2, Primary 3/4 and Primary 5/6/7. Children are split into our three houses: Marchmont, Charterhall and Blackadder.

At Greenlaw Primary School and ELC we continually strive to ensure our pupils benefit from an education that is fit for the 21st century which is full of engaging learning experiences across a wide range of subjects.  We have an inclusive culture where all pupils are encouraged to contribute to the life of the school and take on leadership roles and responsibilities. As a Rights Respecting School we have an ethos of mutual respect where pupils feel safe, happy and are eager to learn. We have dedicated and hardworking staff teams, who create a safe, nurturing and stimulating learning environment.

In the interests of safety for all concerned, all visitors coming to the school must enter by the main entrance and report to the School Office where they will be requested to sign our visitor’s book.
