“We are absolutely delighted to accept the stunning new Calderwood Primary school as a flagship addition to our school estate, which is already one of the best in the country.

“The new school has been designed and built with the learning experience at its heart, and will help create a focus for the new Calderwood community. We know all the parents and carers in the local community will be delighted to have such an excellent facility on their doorstep.

“There have been many challenges to deliver such a fine school against the backdrop of a global pandemic, so huge thanks to Hub South East, Morrison Construction, JM Architects and all the other contractors for their efforts to complete it on budget and ahead of the revised schedule.”
