Loretto Junior School, affectionately known as ‘The Nippers’, is East Lothian’s leading independent Junior School for children aged 5–12 years – with around 200 boys and girls in attendance. We are predominantly a day school but every year we welcome a number of boarders who join us aged 11. The Early Years (5 - 7 years) is based at Eskbank, while the Nippers (8 - 12 years) is at North Esk Lodge. The latter is the school’s busy hub for both day pupils and boarders, situated on a site close enough to the Senior School to share its facilities, but separate enough to allow its pupils to feel secure and happy in their own independent environment. The Loretto Nursery (0 - 5 years) is also located close by.
