And families and members of the public turned out to view the proposals, as well as staff and students.
Over the past few months, various design workshops have been held on aspects of the high school campus, including classrooms, school environment, school appearance, and access to and from the building. Primary pupils from some of the surrounding schools, Dumfries High School pupils of all years, staff and wider stakeholders all participated. They offered their ideas on what they would like to see in the new secondary school in Dumfries.
Design consultants, Ryder Architecture, have led the design of many school projects across Scotland. It was the team that ran the workshops. They collated all the feedback and used it to inform their design proposal for the new school.
Principal Phil Cubbon said: “This is a very exciting time for the Dumfries High School community. Work is due to start on the new build in early 2023 and the new Dumfries High School will open in 2025.
“We want our new school to provide the best teaching and learning experiences for all of our young people.”
