Located within a Conservation Area, it sits quietly on Perth Road as a two storey linear building. The challenging gradients of the site, dropping some 10m from the road level to the rear of the site, conceals a further 2 storeys from street view, with the building revealing its four storey glass faade to the South, addressing the courtyard playground. The school is optimised to offer a variety of formal, open plan and informal teaching spaces to support delivery of a Curriculum for Excellence.
