What We Offer

Education, care and life skills for vision impaired children and young people

pupil studying maths The Royal Blind School is Scotland's only residential school specialising in the care and education of vision impaired children and young people, including those with complex needs and visual impairment. We were founded in 1835. 

We educate pupils from the ages of 5-23.

The school is situated in the Morningside area of Edinburgh. Our campus was fully re-furbished and modernised in Autumn 2015. 

We have a high ratio of staff to pupils and employ nurses, habilitation specialists and physiotherapists as well as teaching staff.

The school is run by the charity Royal Blind and is regulated by Education Scotland and the Care Inspectorate.

Pupils attend either on a daily basis or can board in our residential houses.  We offer a variety of flexible residential packages, including weekly and term time boarding as well as 52 week provision for those who require it. Our residential houses are fully accessible and designed to be a home away from home.
