Queensferry High School

The new Queensferry High School is a City of Edinburgh Council project, delivered in partnership with Hub South East, with Morrison Construction appointed as the main contractor. It is currently on site and will be deliverd by March 2020.

Planning permission was approved in January 2018 for the brand new 1,200 capacity secondary school after extensive consultation with educationalists, service users and the local community.

Approved plans includes a new school, incorporating a sports hall and new 6 lane swimming pool (increased in size from 4 lanes after taking into account community feedback). Externally there will be a new full sized 3G pitch for football within the site and access to a full sized 3G pitch for rugby and football off site (not linked with the application), as well as running track, long jump, shot put provision, rounders pitch and three hard play spaces marked out for basketball/netball.

The new school will be built on the current school’s playing fields and, following completion, the old school will be demolished, with the area landscaped and a new pitch created on the site.
