The expansion of Winchburgh Primary and Holy Family Primary and creation and delivery of new state-of-the-art primary and secondary schools as part of the wider masterplan for Winchburgh is absolutely key to the development.

The new schools will be West Lothian Council’s largest ever single capital investment and will be delivered as part of the current phase of the development and are due to open in January 2023. The joint working arrangements in place with West Lothian Council and the Scottish Government have been crucial to the delivery of these and wider physical infrastructure projects at Winchburgh.

The approved masterplan includes two new secondary schools – a non-denominational and denominational school (Sinclair Academy and Winchburgh Academy) – which will be located on a single school campus along with a new Holy Family Primary school.

The new schools will be unique in their setting as they are adjacent to the Auldcathie District Park. The secondary schools will provide the community with state-of-the-art indoor sports facilities including a 25m swimming pool.
