About Wallyford Learning Campus

Wallyford Learning Campus has been designed as a place where the community can learn, meet and grow together.

The building has been designed to complement the neighbouring Wallyford Primary School with extensive glazing, access to natural light and brick-clad facades. 

We are very excited about the additional opportunities that this campus provides.

Rosehill High School

At its heart is our newest secondary school, Rosehill High School, which has been built to accommodate a growing pupil roll in the local area. It will act as the feeder school for children living in the catchment areas of Wallyford Primary School and Pinkie St Peter’s Primary School, Musselburgh. The new school has a projected future pupil roll of 1000+ with around 300 young people due to attend initially when the school opens in August 2023. View the school catchment area

Alongside modern teaching and social spaces, the new learning facility includes specialist provision for secondary age young people with severe and complex needs who live across the county; and a dedicated Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) centre.

The name reflects the local area and the school's nature-based design and follows extensive consultation with learners, families and staff. While it will be known as Rosehill High School, it remains part of Wallyford Learning Campus and Wallyford is very much part of its identity.

Learning partnerships

The spaces have been designed to provide partnership opportunities and routes into further and higher education as well as employment.

The Regional Construction Skills Academy is a partnership with Edinburgh College to support the progression of skilled workers into the industry, contributing to growth both within the region and across Scotland. Edinburgh College is currently delivering two courses at the campus: NPA Construction Craft Level 4 and Introduction to Construction from the campus grounds and will shortly move into a purpose built space within the campus.

Meanwhile an Agricultural Skills Academy with growing spaces, greenhouses and polytunnels outdoors will support practical learning in school as well as partnership with Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) to deliver horticulture qualifications from the site. We will be working with colleagues across the council to explore how we can develop community nurture projects that will create intergenerational opportunities.

Community spaces


The Margaret Oliphant Library will open to the public on Friday 29 September at 2pm. Phased opening will see the library open to the public on Fridays (2pm to 5pm) and Saturdays (10am to 1pm) working towards an increase in hours in the coming months.

The library takes its name from a 19th century writer, Margaret Oliphant, who lived in Wallyford while the design echoes the nature-inspired interiors across the campus which reflect the area surrounding the building. It features light wooden finishes, extensive use of glass with views to the east of Wallyford, soft sage and teal furnishings and adjoins a large lecture space which will be available for community use. The library has plenty of space for weekly Bookbug sessions which are due to begin on Saturday 7 October. The team can't wait to welcome members of the public in!

Wallyford Community Centre

The current community centre building is due to close on 30 October, with services starting in the new campus on 6 November. The team is currently working towards this date with the various user groups, including the management committee, to support a positive transition and to plan an official opening event. A programme of activities to be delivered in the new centre has been designed. This will include events already familiar to the community along with some new ones to make the most of the spaces. We look forward to welcoming you there. 

Sports facilities

Wallyford Learning Campus has been designed as a space for community, learning, health and wellbeing. The building is surrounded by green spaces for curricular use as well as wider sporting activities. The campus boasts a synthetic pitch lined for football and rugby, a synthetic hockey pitch and, in time, two further grass pitches. The pitches, which will be available for public use and bookings, are expected to open in October.

Our Active Business team is currently assessing how to support local community clubs to make best use of these new exciting facilities, as well as members of the public.
