Opened on 18th October 2007, Moorfoot Primary & Nursery School was created from the merger of nearby Borthwick and Temple Primary Schools. Similar in their traditional values and community ethos, the schools have a shared past with close links and together are creating a superb school for the future in the Moorfoot area. The school covers a wide catchment, from Toxside through Temple to outer Gorebridge, North Middleton to Currie Inn. We are lucky enough to enjoy a top of the range school with high tech facilities yet in a rural setting, wich classrooms looking out onto green fields. Take a look at our amazing facilities, the amphitheatre, the AstroTurf and the willow tunnel. Whether you are a parent, a child at the school or you are interested in coming to our school, we hope you like our website and keep coming back for more.
