The Royal Blind School (founded in 1793) is a specialist day and boarding school located in Edinburgh, Scotland run by the charity Royal Blind. The school caters for pupils aged 3 to 19 who are blind or partially sighted, and has facilities for children of nursery, primary and secondary age. Students attending the school come primarily from Scotland, but also from other parts of the United Kingdom.
The school was divided into two campuses, both situated in Edinburgh. These were located in Canaan Lane and Craigmillar Park. The Craigmillar Park campus (55.9300°N 3.1735°W / 55.9300; -3.1735 (Royal Blind School, Craigmillar Park campus)) is for pupils who are blind and partially sighted, while the Canaan Lane campus (55.9294°N 3.2026°W / 55.9294; -3.2026 (Royal Blind School, Canaan Lane campus)) caters for students with multiple disabilities. In August 2014, the two campuses combined into one and all of the children now attend the Canaan Lane campus.
In March 1997, the school featured in a groundbreaking documentary for ITV as part of its Network First strand. A follow up programme, Blind School Christmas Special was shown in December of that year.
