Is the whole school being rebuilt?

The Council held consultation meetings with the school and local community, and considered whether the school should be redeveloped as a new build or as a refurbishment of existing buildings. Sites nearby were considered for a complete new build of the whole school, for example at Bangholm, but these sites would have their own limitations or would be likely to result in lengthy planning delays. Therefore, the Council’s way forward is to redevelop the Craighall Road site using a mix of new build and refurbishment, while replacing the sports facility at the Bangholm with new buildings. This proposal also potentially enables stronger connections with amenities in the local community such as the park and the bike path although these details are still to be developed.
