The new secondary has been built on the site of its 1970s predecessor, upgrading the facilities on offer and incorporating a new community library and environmental gardens.
Adjacent nursery and primary schools have also been transferred into the new campus, allowing conversion of the B listed building to form new office accommodation.

Cllr Angus Campbell, Leader of the Comhairle noted "The all-through campus provides teaching facilities from nursery age children right through to 6th year secondary pupils and coupled with the integration of the Harris Sports Centre, Rally Park football pitch and the community library, the new school provides a comprehensive range of amenities under one roof.”
The design team comprises 3DReid, Goodson, Wallace Whittle and TGP Landscape Architects with FMP acting as main contractor and FES FM Ltd undertaking facilities management.
