Liberton High School

Visualisation of the new Liberton High School building

We are building a new Liberton High School on the site of the existing playing fields on Gilmerton Road, Liberton. The new building is being built to Passivhaus standards to provide comfort while being energy efficient.

Key milestones

October 2023 - main construction starts

January 2026 - main construction complete

January 2027 - demolition of existing building and additional landscaping complete

We developed a brief for the new school which was influenced by the school's vision and the feedback from the community. We held a series of workshops with key stakeholders to plan principles for

  • education

  • inclusion

  • outdoor learning and sustainability

  • digital learning

  • community access.

The new Liberton High School will be an inviting and welcoming place for students and the community. Community spaces will be accessible from the main foyer during the day and outside school hours. There will also be a library, café, fitness suite and dance studio which will be available to the community during the day.
