Calderwood Primary

The £14m Calderwood Primary School, designed with innovation, sustainability and flexibility as core objectives, was delivered within budget and ahead of schedule to extremely positive feedback. Located in the heart of the new Calderwood development, West Lothian Council’s new flagship school can accommodate 462 pupils, plus early years learning for 128 children, with plans already in place for future expansion. The vision of Calderwood Primary is ‘Beyond the Dream’, setting the highest levels of aspirations for its children, champions and community, and the new building, with its open plan layout, breakout spaces, STEM station and Discovery Den helps its young people to be able to follow their dreams, and beyond.

“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.”
