Welcome to the ESMS Junior School.

We are so glad that you could join us for Virtual Open Day.

ESMS Junior School is a warm, fun, imaginative place where every child, from Nursery to Primary 7, is known personally and teachers inspire children to aim high, seize every opportunity and discover their natural talents.

We are motivated by the belief that a happy childhood will help children thrive socially, emotionally and academically.

Meet the Head of ESMS Junior School

Mr Kane would like to welcome you to the School and tell you why he thinks it is so special in the video below. 

Take a look around our Junior School

From Nursery to Primary 3, the children are based on our Ravelston site and from Primary 4 to Primary 7, they are based at Queensferry Road. Once you have had a chance to explore we would love to invite you into the school to see it in person.

A rounded education

Our rounded education is sector-leading with a high standard of academic education, strong pastoral care and an extensive programme of extra-curricular activities and outdoor learning, all underpinned by our nine values. It is this approach that has earned us our reputation for developing grounded, resilient, accomplished boys and girls with good hearts.

Pastoral Care

We are proud of our sector-leading pastoral care. It is our priority to make sure that every child feels valued.

Education and Learning

We know that you'll have questions about what your child will study at ESMS Junior School and how they will be taught. We hope we can answer your questions here.


Our vast range of extra-curricular opportunities ensure that there really is something for everyone to enjoy.
