Welcome to St David's RC High School

St David's High School serves the educational needs of the Catholic community of Midlothian and East Lothian, corresponding closely to the Deanery of St David's. In addition, we welcome a number of non-denominational pupils to the school and a growing number of students from around the world who choose to spend a year with us as part of their school career. 

St David's was established as a junior secondary school in Dalkeith in1948 and developed into the present 6 year co-educational comprehensive school from August 1960.  In August 1966 the school moved to Abbey Road in what were originally the grounds of Newbattle Abbey. In October 2003, we moved to our current location in Cousland Road and we are now part of the Dalkeith Campus of schools.

Our associated primaries are St Mary's, Bonnyrigg, St David's, Dalkeith, St Margaret's, Loanhead, St Luke's, Mayfield, St Andrew's, Newtonloan, Sacred Heart, Penicuik, St Matthew's, Rosewell and Loretto, Musselburgh, although a number of pupils join us from other Midlothian primary schools.
