New West Calder High School

Plans to deliver a new £32 million West Calder High School have taken a huge step forward.

Planning permission has been approved for the brand new 1,100 capacity secondary school on the eastern side of the village near Parkhead Primary, which will include a swimming pool, floodlit 3G sports pitch, and sports facilities for school and community use.

The new school is West Lothian Council's largest ever single investment in education.  It is being developed through Hub South East Scotland, with Morrison Construction appointed to build the new school.

The new school will open in 2018, and has been designed with the pupil experience at the core, as well as providing facilities accessible to the local community.  A new £5.5 million rail overbridge and access road is currently being built that will provide a direct link to the school from the A71.

Updates will be posted on this page as the project progresses.
