Holy Rood is a Catholic secondary school with a roll of 1167 pupils. It is situated in the conservation village of Duddingston to the east of Holy Rood Park. There are six Catholic primary schools within the Holy Rood catchment area, which covers a large section of the eastern side of the City of Edinburgh. However, as a result of parental choice, the current First Year has attracted pupils from a total of 28 different primary schools.

Holy Rood is an inclusive school which respects the dignity of the individual and firmly puts the child at the centre. Attainment data evidences that pupil attainment is of a very high standard generally. In addition, the school has made significant progress in closing the equity gap. Holy Rood is a progressive school and is quick off the mark to embrace current national and local priorities. The school has well-bedded and successful strategies in place to meet the needs of all pupils, including those with ASN and those who are gifted and talented.

The school has a strong sense of community and has worked hard to achieve very productive links with its cluster primary schools, Further Education Colleges, local businesses and a variety of other community partners. This is reflected in the programme of opportunities for personal development, extra-curricular activities and wider achievement the school offers, and for which it receives well deserved acclaim. Holy Rood is very strong in promoting DYW and the STEM agenda.
