Our Schools

The Catholic school attempts to assist parents in helping their children to grow in knowledge, wisdom and virtue.

The Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh contains 11 Catholic high schools and 69 Catholic primary schools.

These are operated in partnership with families and local governments.

A good school provides a rounded education for the whole person. And a good Catholic school, over and above this, should help all its students to become saints,

said Pope Benedict XVI in his address to school pupils from across the UK at St Mary’s University College, Twickenham, in September 2010.

The Catholic school attempts to assist parents in helping their children to grow in knowledge, wisdom and virtue so that our young people develop into adults who are both happy and holy as they fulfill their God-given potential.
