More details of the replacement Newbattle High School have been revealed at the latest public consultation.

Although no decisions have been made regarding the actual new school building – to be built across the road from the existing school – the two football pitches there will be kept, with a new synthetic pitch and a new grass pitch installed. And an existing pathway between Mayfield and Easthouses will be retained amid concerns it would be removed.

These details were revealed at the latest round of public consultation on the new school, held last week in Mayfield, Gorebridge and Newtongrange.

Council officials gathered feedback from the public and will come back with more details in six weeks time for the next round of consultation, which will establish what will go into the new school

The last meeting of this phase of the consultation process will take place at the current Newbattle High School from 9am- 1pm, on Saturday, October 4.
