Canaan Lane Primary School

A new primary school is being constructed in Canaan Lane in South Edinburgh.  The new school is being delivered to take pressure off neighbouring schools and will open in August 2022.

The opening of the new school is a complex process as a significant element of the new school’s accommodation will be made up of the space offered in the existing Deanbank House which currently serves as South Morningside Primary School’s infant annexe.  

Pupils from South Morningside Primary School’s infant classes will relocate from Deanbank House to the new building for the 2022/23 academic year, sharing it with the first cohort of P1 pupils attending the new school.  This will allow a year for Deanbank House to be fully refurbished.
