Pupil Achievements

Robbie receiving Scout award

The Royal Blind School educates pupils with a range of disabilities and vision impairments. Our approach is inclusive and pupil-centred, providing many opportunities for experience and achievement. While our pupils undergo special schooling, we strive to make learning fun, challenging and self-affirming. 

We are proud of our pupils' achievements, some of which are highlighted below. 

Miles Briggs Christmas Card 2017

All secondary schools in the Lothian region were invited to take part in Miles Briggs’  ‘Design a Christmas Card” Competition, and Royal Blind School pupil, Namarra’s design was chosen from several hundred entries. Namarra won a prize and her design was also used on Miles’ official MSP Christmas card.

Prestigious Scouts Award

January 2016 - Robbie Dalgleish (pictured right), was awarded the Medal for Meritorious Conduct, an award given by the Chief Scout for demonstrating a high degree of courage, endurance, initiative or devotion to duty, often under suffering, without necessarily involving any element of risk.

Swimming Awards 

October 2015 - Myles Fleming won first place in the 25 metre back stroke and second place in the 25 metre front crawl at the Lothian Schools Swim Qualifier competition at Dalkeith.  Harrison Lovett won third place in the 25 metre front crawl.

Christina Tyler was awarded a Silver medal in the 25m front crawl and a Bronze medal in the 25m breast stroke at the the Scottish Disability Sport Championships for swimmers with a physical disability or sensory impairment in Grangemouth.
