Constructing 21st-century learning facilities

Construction of the new Simonside Primary School in Newbiggin Hall will increase the current school’s capacity by over 100 places and provide a stimulating, inclusive, 21st century learning environment for pupils and teaching staff.

Simonside Primary school is the first phase of a wider 18.2-acre education development on the site. The second phase of this project will bring a new secondary school as well new playing fields for use by both schools as well as the local community.

Robertson previously completed a £600k package of enabling works, involving demolition of an existing community centre and clearance of the site to make way for construction next to the existing Simonside Primary School. Demolition of the old primary school will be carried out during phase 2.
