Pupils begin lessons at £30m Greenfaulds High
1,500 pupils have begun taking lessons at the £30m Greenfaulds High School, Cumbernauld, following handover of the new building to North Lanarkshire Council.

Designed by Norr Architects and delivered by Morrison Construction the new school contains a Gaelic education unit and is dominated by a large central hall, dining space and courtyard.

Councillor Frank McNally, convener of education, commented: "This building will not only serve generations of children in Cumbernauld, it will also become a much-valued community asset for local groups to enjoy in the evening and weekends."

Work has now progressed on an accompanying eight lane athletics facility together with demolition of the old school, the footprint of which will be utilised for additional outdoor sport pitches by spring 2017.

A Gaelic Education Unit.......great news for the people of North Lanarkshire.

It's like a second language to the majority of people from Cumbernauld (like myself)

More Gaelic signposts ....that what I say !

Robb, there is already a Gaelic education unit serving NL located in Cumbernauld. I assume this is a continuation of that service

refreshing to see some interiors. We get to 'judge' most new school designs on their exterior.
Looks like some great, naturally-lit open spaces.
