Levenmouth High School moves on site
Work to build a new £35m High School in Levenmouth, Fife, has got underway with BAM Construction breaking ground on the 1,800 pupil joint campus.

Designed by Aedas the school will serve the catchment areas of Buckhaven High School and Kirkland High School, allowing both to be closed. 

In their design statement Aedas wrote that the scheme is focussed on an internal street defined by a signature piece of public art and from which teaching wings will radiate, writing: “… the exploration of dynamic relationships between the social space ‘street’ and education areas, has created opportunities for a new learning community. The street at the heart of the building will be opened up to be visible on approach to the building as a clear demonstration of openness and visual link to the wider community.”

The school is scheduled to open its doors to pupils in August 2016 and is being built in tandem with a new building for Fife College on an adjacent plot.
