Welcome to Hermitage Primary!

Welcome to our website. Hermitage Primary school is a happy, vibrant and hard working school and we work in partnership with others to provide as many opportunities as we can for our pupils. Within a nurturing, caring, safe environment, we set our standards high and our children engage in a very wide variety of tasks and activities, designed to extend and develop vital skills matched to their ongoing personal development. Working within Scottish Government Guidelines in A Curriculum for Excellence, lessons are motivating and enriching and pupils are keen to learn. Learning is stimulating and creative; we celebrate diversity and challenge learners.

Our School slogan is “Be the Best You Can Be!” – and we work to inspire children to take opportunity, believe in themselves and to be ambitious in their outlook.
