Rising Rolls School Extensions

The Rising Rolls programme is an innovative solution to help tackle rising school numbers by developing, designing and constructing new classrooms in short timescales. These new school extensions are being built as long term solutions. This programme, having delivered 25 facilities between 2013 and 2018, is an excellent example of working with a Client to develop creative, flexible solutions for service delivery issues.

We have been proactive in tackling the challenge of rising schools for the past six years to ensure our pupils have the very best learning environment. The new buildings are a great example of how we have responded to accommodation issues by working with school communities to come up with suitable solutions. This Council has led the way in Scotland in taking such an innovative and collaborative approach to tackling the issue of rising rolls and invested significantly in the new accommodation delivered.
