Wardie is a non-denominational school with a nursery, four classes at stage P1, three classes at stages P3 – P5 and two classes at stages P6 & P7. The school is located to the North of the city of Edinburgh, close to the Firth of Forth with the Royal Botanical Gardens to the south of its catchment. Next to the school is a large sports recreation ground. The school grounds are managed by a committee of enthusiastic staff, parents and pupils and there is a long term development plan incorporating provision for play and conservation.
The school has fostered many links with its community, particularly Wardie Church and St Columba’s Hospice.
