Belhaven Hill School

Co-ed Boarding & Day School for ages 5-13

Headmaster's Welcome


Headmaster's Welcome to Belhaven Hill School

Welcome to the Belhaven Hill School website. I hope that you enjoy this window into our wonderful school. Whether you are a parent looking for the best option for your family or an Old Belhavian keen to rekindle the magical relationships made during childhood, you would be so welcome to come and see us.

Belhaven offers its children the very best start in life. Our core values of courage, creativity and courtesy encourage everyone at Belhaven to explore…whether it be our idyllic parkland campus and the beauty of the East Lothian coast or the mysteries of a broad range of subjects that stretch far beyond the curriculum.  By promoting kindness, we continually support one another in the discovery of the world in which we live and seek to influence. 

The children’s exploration of this world, which starts with wonder at the growth of a seed or the hatching of a chick, can now be enhanced as they learn to harness the natural and digital resources around them; a well-positioned camera in a nesting box, controlled from a dormitory hideout by an app created in a combined Outdoor Education and Science lesson – that is the kind of composite experience that I wish for our children at Belhaven.  

In a school set up for boarding and day pupils, we have the enormous twin benefits of time and pastoral expertise. When these combine with ambitious children in a beautiful setting, there is no limit to what can be achieved. Come and see us to find out more – you can always be sure of a warm welcome. In the meantime, please do enjoy our website and our new video.
