Belhaven is a leading boarding and day prep school in Scotland for boys and girls aged 5 to 13 years.

Head's Welcome

Belhaven offers its children the very best start in life. Our core values of courage, creativity and courtesy encourage everyone to explore…whether it be our idyllic parkland campus and the East Lothian coast or the mysteries of a creative and forward-looking curriculum.  By promoting kindness, we continually support one another in the discovery of the world in which we live.


Set in 20 acres of beautiful grounds, Belhaven has an idyllic, coastal setting and enjoys easy access to the A1, East Coast Rail Line and Edinburgh Airport. We also operate a comprehensive daily and weekend minibus service.

Belhaven offers a forward-looking and creative academic curriculum with outdoor learning, as well as comprehensive Support for Learning. In 2020, the 26 leavers secured 18 scholarships between them, including awards for Academics, Sport, Music and Art to leading schools in Scotland and England.

At Belhaven, we believe that children should be encouraged to be children and that the outdoors is just as important as the classroom. Core values of courtesy, courage and creativity encourage strong friendships and a home-from-home feel – all key elements of Belhaven life.
