Proposed Design For New Dumfries High School To Go On Show

Design proposals for the new Dumfries High School will go on show at a public engagement event. The event will take place at Dumfries High School on Wednesday 2 November, 2-7pm. Members of the public are invited to come along and view the proposals for themselves.

Over the last few months, different design workshops have taken place looking at aspects of the Dumfries High School campus including the classrooms, the school environment, the look and feel of the school and access to and from the building. Primary pupils from some of the surrounding schools, Dumfries High School pupils from all years, staff and wider stakeholders have all taken part. They have been putting forward their ideas on what they would like to see in the new Dumfries High School.

The design consultants, Ryder Architecture, have led the design of many school projects across Scotland. They were the team leading on the workshops. They have collated all the feedback and have used this to inform their design proposal for the new school.

Headteacher of Dumfries High School, Phil Cubbon, said “this is a very exciting time for the Dumfries High School community. Work is due to start on the new build in early 2023 and the new Dumfries High School will open in 2025. We want our new school to deliver the very best teaching and learning experiences for all our young people. That is why it is important that as many people as possible come along and look at the proposals, meet the team and ask any questions that they might have. We want everyone to feel part of this new school community, so we look forward to this public engagement event and hear directly from everyone on their thoughts for our new school.”
