As you are aware, the Parent Council are part of the team seeking to purchase St. Oswald’s Hall which is directly adjacent to the school. Below is some more information about the plans and the opportunity to get involved by becoming a member. Click here for the signup form.
St Oswald’s Church and Hall
St. Oswald’s Church and Hall on Montpelier Park sit at the heart of many communities in and around the Bruntsfield area in the south of Edinburgh. The site was left vacant in February 2018 when Boroughmuir High School moved to its canal-side site.
In August 2020 the City of Edinburgh Council approved the purchase of the church and hall by Bruntsfield St. Oswald’s Ltd. (St. Oswald’s).
St. Oswald’s aims to create a vibrant, family-focused, community hub which will facilitate a wide range of clubs, classes and leisure opportunities for all local residents as well as wrap-around childcare and after-school activities for local children and young people. It is hoped that St. Oswald’s Centre will open in Spring 2022 after a period of renovation and refurbishment.
Local residents, families and groups now have the opportunity to become members of St. Oswald’s and thereby help to develop, shape and support a sustainable future for this community hub.
If you would like to participate in this community initiative and contribute to a thriving, intergenerational public space, please complete this online form. Please feel free to pass this on to your friends, neighbours and anyone else you feel may be interested.
