Peebles High School


Located in the Scottish Borders, PeeblesHigh School is a state comprehensive school for girls and boys aged 11–18.

ATTA were commissioned by the Scottish Borders Council to design an extension which would accommodate relocated departments and also provide additional social space for the students.

A space optimisation study was carried out to determine the best possible outcome for the re-organisation.

The two storey extension is separated from the existing building by a double-height glazed atrium providing excellent levels of daylight alongside the introduction of greenery which together creates a pleasant meeting and socialising area.

In addition, an external courtyard has been designed which is used as an outdoor performance space.
