The incoming headteacher at Midlothian’s newest school has described the “tremendous buzz” of taking charge of the state-of-the-art facility.
Alan Williamson was the boss at Hawick High School for seven years before taking up the challenge of managing Lasswade High.
He said: “It’s early days but so far, a positive start. It’s a tremendous buzz looking after around 1,400 pupils and the school’s new facilities are second to none. It’s great to have a supportive team of teachers on board too. I’m very excited about my new job, new building, great staff and kids.”
The new Lasswade High School includes a community campus complete with two sports halls, a gymnasium, pool, library and café.
Mr Williamson’s deputy, Rosemary Mitchell, has been impressed by the new facilities at the £37m building.
