Around 1,500 pupils in Midlothian are about to start the new term in a brand new high school.

The Lasswade High School Centre is due to open its doors to teachers and young people on Monday (August 26).

The new £37.1m school features a bright and airy atrium and brand new classrooms. The dining hall is fully open planned with space for sixth years on the top floor.

The old school building is currently being demolished and the ground is due to be flattened and made into football, rugby and one 3G pitch for the school and local community.

Councillor Lisa Beattie, Cabinet Member for Education, said: “We look forward to welcoming pupils and teachers to their fantastic new school at the start of the new term.

“I’m sure pupils will be delighted with their new classrooms and modern facilities on offer. It really is an inspiring and functional educational space.”
