A New Kirkliston High School on the Kirkliston Leisure Centre Site

Closed 30 Jun 2023

Opened 1 Jun 2023

Results updated 18 Jan 2024

A report on the outcomes of the statutory consultation is now available. This report will be considered at the Council meeting on Thursday, 8 February 2024. 



In January 2023, we asked people to give us their views on the future of secondary school provision in Queensferry and Kirkliston.  People told us that there should be a new high school in Kirkliston.  Some people said that we should redevelop the existing Kirkliston Leisure Centre site for a new high school. 

We have appointed an architect to write a report telling us whether a high school for up to 1,200 pupils could be built on the Kirkliston Leisure Centre site.  This new school would include public leisure facilities.

We would like to share with you information about this work as it progresses.  We would also like to hear your views.

Why your views matter

Your feedback will help us decide whether to recommend to the Council’s Education, Children & Families committee on 5 September 2023 that a statutory consultation should be undertaken.  A statutory consultation would be required before we could build a new school. 

You can get the questionnaire on audio CD, in Braille, large print if you ask us. Please contact Interpretation and Translation Service (ITS) on its@edinburgh.gov.uk  and quote reference number 23-8763. ITS can also give information on community language translations.
