Port Glasgow Community Campus opens its doors
Inverclyde Council has officially unveiled one of the biggest school-build projects in Scotland, the £44m Port Glasgow Community Campus.

Housing the former Port Glasgow High, St Stephen’s High and Craigmarloch Additional Support Needs (ASN) School under one roof the campus is being hailed as a model for other authorities to follow.

Both High Schools retain their own separate entrances, foyer and teaching areas whilst retaining a shared social hub, assembly hall and canteen as well as shared facilities in art, science & technology, music, sports and drama.

Education & communities convener councillor Terry Loughran commented: " These are state of the art facilities providing the best educational environment that money can buy for our children and young people and wonderful community facilities for the people of Port Glasgow to enjoy whether in sport, IT or just meeting areas."

Port Glasgow High head teacher Alan Dick said: “It is just amazing. It is the best place I have ever seen let alone taught in after 36 years in teaching. The pupils are loving it. Their immediate reaction was a lot of ‘wow’s’. Not only is the new campus state-of-the-art it is also bright and light and that really boosts everyone’s mood.”

Port Glasgow Community Campus was designed by Ingenium Archial and built by Graham Construction.
