Newbattle Abbey College is an A Listed building situated in a 125 acre estate, seven miles from Edinburgh. The estate includes ancient woodlands, parklands, a community garden, a Business Park and student residential facilities. The College delivers a range of courses to adult learners and to young people at points of transition, particularly those facing multiple barriers to learning. In the past three years Newbattle has developed as a Forest College with a range of courses offered in college, in the community and with partners across Scotland. As a Forest College, we offer creative outdoor learning, based on the Forest School model. This is designed to develop the outdoors and the woodland environment as a space for learning, developing core skills and building confidence.
