Old School

The old Tynecastle High School is a B-listed building.  It opened in 1912.

In April 2007, Edinburgh Council approved the sale of the school and nearby nursery to Heart of Midlothian Football Club.  It was expected that the school would be demolished to allow new building by the football club to proceed.

However, in May 2007, a Liberal Democrats / Scottish National Party coalition took control of  Edinburgh City Council and vowed to oppose any plans to demolish the old school, a B-listed building.

New School

Edinburgh Council's, in April 2007 gave approval for a new Tynecastle High School to be built in McLeod Street in McLeod Street, close to the old school.

The school has now been built.   It opened in January 2010.
