Good progress is being made with construction of the new Wallyford learning campus, which is due to open in August 2023.
What will be in the Wallyford Learning Campus?
At the heart of the £47.2 million building will be East Lothian’s newest secondary school which will meet the needs of a growing school roll in the local area.
The new secondary school has a projected future pupil roll of 1000+ with around 300 young people expected to attend initially when the school opens in August 2023.
Alongside modern teaching and social spaces, the new learning facility will include specialist provision for secondary age young people with severe and complex needs who live across the county; a dedicated Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) centre; and a Tots and Teens area.
In addition, the facility will provide access to gym, sport, nutrition and health and wellbeing facilities. A range of partnership opportunities have been well developed in order to provide an enhanced range of outdoor learning, employability and training opportunities, for both adults and young people.
The building has been designed to complement the neighbouring Wallyford Primary School with extensive glazing, access to natural light and brick-clad facades.
We are very excited about the additional opportunities that this campus provides. Read more
