As much as I am delighted that the community will have a lovely new high-tech school, however, the delays have been unprecedented!! My sons are due to go into this school for P6 and P7 however delays are likely to mean that my eldest son will never enter the school. Such a shame as they have heard about this since P4...here's hoping it actually does finish in 2018.....

It's a somber, dark looking thing...with overscaled glazing panels and a low budget commercial office aesthetic. Is this really the best we can do?...
