Towerbank is a large non-denominational, three/four stream primary school located very close to Portobello Beach. Our school serves the community of Portobello on the outskirts of Edinburgh.  We are so proud to be the only beach school in Edinburgh!

The school buildings are both traditional and modern. The original building is Victorian and dates back to 1884 and our eight class extension and a purpose built nursery was opened in August 2013.  The current roll is 643 pupils in the main school and 80 children in the nursery.  We have 23 classes in the mainschool with 2 nursery classes.  We have an Afterschool Club and Breakfast Club.

Towerbank is an integral part of the community both educationally and socially.  Strong links continue to be developed with many community organisations and regular opportunities exist to work in partnership. We also work very closely with our Parents and Carers and are always looking for ways to include the whole school community in the life of Towerbank.

We are very proud our strong culture of inclusion in Towerbank and the thoughts and opinions of the pupils at Towerbank are strongly encouraged through our Pupil Parliament.
