Pupils get 'hands on' with Inverclyde school expansion
An expansion of the St Columba’s independent school, Inverclyde, is on track for completion this September with the conversion of two villas to form 13 classrooms.

The Villa’s Development Education programme will also include a new library, pastoral care suite, common rooms and social space whilst allowing drama to be added to curriculum for seniors.

Throughout the work pupils have been encouraged to track the progress of work from the installation of foundations to the commissioning and occupation processes, allowing them to interact with architects, surveyors, engineers and landscape architects.

In a statement the school observed: “Pupils involved have received presentations from the various ‘trades’ and will continue to attend a number of site visits at key stages in the building development, with each visit focusing on a different aspect of the construction process.”

The new school is being delivered by Thomas Johnstone to designs by Burnet Bell and Page\Park.
The multimillion redevelopment is scheduled for completion in September
