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.
