“Knox Academy is the descendant of a medieval grammar school and was dedicated to John Knox at the end of the 19th century. It is a non-denominational and co-educational school whose roll ( at September 2008) was 827. Knox Academy has an extensive campus and had a major refurbishment and rebuild in 2005. This provided a combination of new and remodelled facilities. These facilities are accessible to all pupils. New features included a Drama room and Seminar rooms as well as social areas for the pupils. All classrooms and the Library are connected to the Internet and Intranet. The school has extensive playing fields and new sports facilities featuring a full-size Games Hall and Gymnasium. The cluster primary schools are King’s Meadow Primary School, St Mary’s Primary School in Haddington and Yester Primary School in Gifford. Pupils at East Linton Primary School may choose to transfer to Knox Academy.”
