Frogston Primary School in South East Edinburgh opened in its new building in June 2021.  Frogston’s catchment area incorporates several new significant Local Development Plan (LDP) housing developments and a former section of Gracemount primary school’s catchment.  The new school has proved to be very popular and is projected to operate with 11 classes in August 2022.  An expansion strategy for the school is in place to address further growth in the area and this will be delivered at the appropriate time.

Learning landscape

The playground at Frogston Primary School embodies our vision for school grounds. In this landscape we were able to provide the majority of our kit of parts for school playgrounds. The planting is yet to establish and mature but the saplings will grow and create a wonderful place to play and learn.

The school have embraced loose parts play in the courtyard and there is an allotment and wetland area within the outdoor classroom; a destination space where teachers can take a group of students to learn and explore.

  • The courtyard playground enclosed on three sides by the school building. Doors on each wall open out to the tarmac on either side, split in the middle by terraces of shrub and grass planting
