Essential Information

All parents of Cargilfield are part of the school community and we encourage your participation in all aspects of the school.

One of the unique features of Cargilfield is that we have always maintained a close bond with our parents and former pupils. Throughout the year, we hold a number of events: weekly Chapel services, musical recitals, poetry readings, numerous play productions, our annual Summer and Christmas Fairs and a number of social events organised by the Friends of Cargilfield. Parents are welcome to join us on our annual whole school Pentland Round charity walk and we hold regular drinks receptions to give parents an opportunity to meet others and talk with some of the staff.

Essential Information

Parents are made aware of the Friends of Cargilfield and, through the Friends, further meetings take place whether they be drinks receptions, parties or perhaps meetings to discuss charity support for the year. We aim to keep very close communication with parents through the Publiciser, the plasma screens in the school reception area, our social media channels and this website. However, much communication happens through talking with the teachers or the Headmaster and Cargilfield staff are always available to meet with parents to go over any aspect of their children’s life.

Cargilfield Connected

We can’t welcome you to our grounds right now, but we can offer you a virtual tour and we can answer questions via email or telephone. We especially like to chat face-to-face on a video call.

We have places available for 2020 entry in most year groups.

For now, we hope that this video, presented by our Headmaster, Mr Rob Taylor, will give you a flavour of what life is like here at Cargilfield. Our website and social media channels are kept up to date and hold a wealth of information about our school.

Our Registrar, Fiona Craig is available to contact via email: and she will be happy to help you.
