St. Davids PrimaryEdinburgh Council Primary. 
Co-educational and denominational school.


St David’s School was opened in 1937 in a small building in Granton Square and moved to West Pilton Place in 1951-52. It was officially opened by the late Cardinal Gray. On September 1st 1987, the school celebrated its Golden Jubilee Anniversary. The occasion was celebrated with a Mass, Dinner for former Staff and a Dance for former pupils.

Ten years later in 1997, our 60th Anniversary was celebrated. A Celtic Cross and two “Stained Glass” windows depicting our patron, St David and his mother St Margaret, were made by our P7 pupils. They made a striking display in the school entrance hall. Archbishop Keith Patrick O’Brien was chief concelebrant at our Jubilee Mass

In August 2002, the school moved again. A new building was opened on a joint campus with Pirniehall Primary School. The new building is in West Pilton Crescent.

Archbishop Keith Patrick O’Brien dedicated the school on Monday 30 September and on Monday 4 November, Cathy Jamieson, Minister of Education and Young People, officially opened the school.

We celebrated the 70th Anniversary of St David’s RC Primary in 2007 with several events, including a Ceilidh and a Mass.
