Welcome to the website for Glencorse Primary School in Milton Bridge, Penicuik. We are a unique, small school with a role of fifteen pupils in a P2-7 class. Our focus is on providing our pupils with skills for life and work and ensuring they learn in a supportive and encouraging environment.

‘A small school building big dreams’


Welcome back and Happy New Year.  We wish you and your family a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2019!


Christmas Fayre

Thank you to everyone who sold and bought tickets for the raffle and to everyone who contributed to the Christmas Fayre.  We raised the amazing amount of £601.60. Fantastic.


Children in Need

Thanks to all children and parents for their contributions of baking for Children in Need.  We have an update on the amount we raised which is now £52.75.  Fantastic!


Parents Evening

Thanks to all the parents and grandparents who attended our Oscar Evening.  We hope you enjoyed the animation presentation on World War II and looking at all the hard work the children put in to the project.



ParentPay – Our New Online School Payment Service

ParentPay is an online payment system for schools. It allows parents to pay quickly and securely for school meals, milk, trips and much more.

I’m delighted to inform you that our school will go-live with ParentPay on 19th March 2018.

The system is easy-to-use and offers parents and carers the freedom to make online payments by credit or debit card, whenever and wherever they like, 24/7.

What parents and carers can do now

  • If you haven’t already, please create an account with our Midlothian Council website where you can also find out more about ParentPay

Parents and carers will be sent individual letters detailing the account activation procedure nearer the time and user guides will be available online.


We will of course continue to accept cash and cheque payments as necessary but we do hope that parents will use the new online facility. Less time spent in school on cash handling means more time is available to support the smooth running of the school.
