Bruntsfield Primary School
Bruntsfield Primary School
One of the school's alumni was wee Tam Connery who went on to become a world-famous actor, better known as Sean Connery. After leaving Darroch Secondary School, aged 13, he started work as a milkman for the St. Cuthbert's Co-operative Dairy in nearby Fountainbridge, but later found his vocation as an actor.

"My first big break came when I was five years old. It's taken me more than seventy years to realise that. You see, at five I first learnt to read. It's that simple and it's that profound. I left school at thirteen. I didn't have a formal education. And yet there I was, accepting the thirty-fourth American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award in the summer of 2006. I told the glittering Hollywood audience that without the lust for reading instilled in me all those years ago by my teachers at the Bruntsfield Primary School in Edinburgh, I would not have been there with them that night." -- Sean Connery, actor, Being A Scot, 2008
