What is this all about?

Building on last year’s successful event, the Preston Lodge High School Learning Festival is back to provide a collaborative, dialogue-based professional learning experience to any and all teachers who wish to attend.

To cover the costs of running this event, this year we will be charging participants a small fee (approx £15).
This does not need to be paid until September when you will choose the workshops you wish to attend.


When and where will it be?

Our Learning Festival will open its doors on Saturday 29th October 2016.

It will take place at Preston Lodge High School in East Lothian.

There will be parking on site, and we are well connected with the number 26 bus from Edinburgh and by rail to Prestonpans station.

Full address: Preston Lodge High School, Park View, Prestonpans, EH32 9QJ
