One of four schools being constructed as part of the West Dunbartonshire PPP Schools programme, Clydebank High School is a direct replacement for its existing namesake.
Designed for a complement of 1,500 pupils and 200 staff, the three-storey building has been constructed on the existing sports pitches, the existing school building has been demolished and state-of-the-art all weather sports facilities have been created.
The main entrance and admin facilities are contained within a feature oval drum signalling the school as a landmark within the local community. A simple plan of three main wings, each with clear circulation routes, disguises a complex interdependency of departments and complimentary educational facilities, with flexible space allowing separation of school and community services.
Environmental considerations have been paramount from conception through detail design and during construction, achieving the school a very good BREEAM rating.
