Names announced for our two new primary schools

More than 900 votes cast

At a full council meeting on Tuesday, councillors heard the names confirmed as the winners after 900 people cast their votes in a Midlothian wide competition.

Delighted with the response

Dr Mary Smith, the Council’s Director of Education, Communities and Economy, said: “We’re delighted with the enthusiastic response

and give our thanks to everyone including school pupils, local community and residents from a wider area who took part in the competition where Bilston and Gore Glen emerged as favourites based on the history and landscape in the area. With the names now chosen, we can look forward to the first pupils arriving at the start of the new school term in August 2016.”
