Community and Partnerships

We provide services and facilities for our local community in many different ways. 

Our Galleon Club is a fully equipped sports and fitness club with membership available to all, we have a range of venues and facilities which are available for hire by the public, including the iconic Myreside Pavilion which provides an outstanding hospitality and catering venue. Our Sports Camps are open for all children and young people and not just our own pupils and our Community Sports Hub provides an excellent range of sporting opportunities in conjunction with the Watsonian Sports Sections, many of which can be enjoyed at minimal or no cost.

GWC Plus is our digital platform where members of the public and pupils at other schools have access to a wide range of digital content. Some items are of general interest whilst others are specific to particular courses or interest groups.

Our partnerships and outreach programme with other local schools includes the Swire Chinese Language Centre Edinburgh which is now the largest single provider of Chinese language teaching in Scotland and a variety of other innovative and highly effective projects.

Project 810 focuses our work to bring about a more equal, more sustainable and kinder world, for example through the Watson’s Malawi Project, a registered charity which works to link communities and individuals in Edinburgh and Malawi for the mutual benefit of all involved.
