Robertson is delivering the project in partnership with hub East Central Scotland and the Scottish Futures Trust for Angus Council.

Robertson is also constructing Ladyloan and Muirfield Primary Schools, both due for completion in 2019 and completed Timmergreens and Warddykes Primary Schools in 2016.

It is a steel frame building, with an internal floor area of 5376m2, a structural timber external ‘envelope’ with cladding in facing brick and timber, with an aluminium standing seam roof.

Pupils are due to move in in February 2020, on completion of the first phase of the project, with the second phase completing in summer 2020.

World-class shared facilities

The school will deliver the very best teaching and learning environment for the people of Arbroath within a realistic budget. As well as meeting future educational needs it will be vibrant community asset as well, with many facilities available for locals to use.
