Duns Primary School

Duns, Scottish Borders

The new Duns Primary School involves the refurbishment of the former Berwickshire High School to provide a properly designed solution to meet the requirements of Curriculum for Excellence within the context of a Listed Building.

The school has been designed for a projected pupil roll of 459 (including 30 SBC Nursery places), based on 14 classrooms / 2 stream, 33 pupils/room and 3 staff/room occupancy with future expansion provision.

A key component of the redevelopment of the school is the integration of the core school building with community facilities that are intended to be provided in other areas of the former High School, such as the swimming pool, sports facilities and the new Jim Clark museum.
