Dalbeattie Learning Campus Complete and Handed Over for Opening

The Dalbeattie Learning Campus has officially been handed over to the Dumfries and Galloway Council. The new Learning Center will be put into use as a replacement for the town’s primary and secondary schools and council nursery schools, which have been previously operating from a number of buildings on separate sites.

The Chairman of the Council’s Children, Young People and Lifelong Learning Committee, Councillor Jeff Leaver has said that Dalbeattie Learning Campus will be used in order to deliver first class facilities which are perfect for 21st century learning. There has been some great feedback received about the Campus so far, and many people have said that they are impressed with the completed project. The building has been described as spacious and bright as well as welcoming. The space has been created with a great deal of thought, with input also taken from the students of the new school. The pupils that will soon move into the new school had input into all aspects of the building including the design.

The setting for the new school is amazing and there are also a range of new sports facilities and other opportunities for outdoor learning which have been selected and built to a first class standard. Work first started at the Dalbeattie Learning Campus in March 2016, with a work schedule planned for 18 months. With the new learning centre now complete, the building is ready for its pupils on schedule.

There is an old High School building located next to the new campus and it is expected that this will soon be demolished and replaced with landscaping before being incorporated into the larger campus site. The new campus is expected to open its door to pupils next week, and it is said that they are excited to go to their new school for the first time.
