£32m West Calder High School given the nod
A £32m High School designed by Norr Architects and RankinFraser landscape architects has been given the go-ahead by West Lothian Council, connecting to the existing village by a new road and rail bridge.

West Calder High School is being built by Morrison Construction to cater for 1,100 pupils on land near the current Parkhead Primary and will include a swimming pool and sport pitches for shared community use.

Built around a multi-use amphitheatre encircled by teaching spaces the school constitutes the largest single investment in education ever to be undertaken by the council.

Construction work should get underway by September with pupils moving into their new school by March 2018.

Work has already begun on a £5.5m road bridge over a nearby rail line to provide access to the site.
