Borders school renaissance continues with Jedburgh Grammar Campus

Scottish Borders Council has taken possession of Jedburgh Grammar Campus following handover by Hub South East and main contractor BAM Construction.

Pupils and staff will move into the flagship learning space next month, which will serve as a unified replacement for three existing schools in the town by providing nursery, primary, secondary and additional support needs services all under one roof.

Designed by Stallan-Brand the new school is designed to work with the surrounding topography by partially burrowing games halls into the hillside using large saw-tooth roof lanterns to draw downlight.

Greig Jamieson, commercial director at Hub South East, said: "A great deal of work went on in the background between all parties to ensure the design, development and construction of the project could proceed at pace to meet a Spring 2020 deadline set by Scottish Government and we managed this successfully, resulting in the delivery of a modern, high quality, innovative building that meets the intergenerational learning needs of the town."
 
Scottish Borders Council Leader, Councillor Shona Haslam, added: "The new Jedburgh Grammar Campus is amazing, and the children who saw the facility this week were also blown away with the equipment and facilities on offer such as the sprung floor dance studios and technology rooms.
 
"There is also a state of the art security measures in place for all children and a range of fantastic sports facilities.”

A public library, rural skills area and contact centre will also be provided in the accommodation mix.

A lot of it reminds me of the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh for some reason
