Arbroath primary schools

The first phase of the Arbroath Schools Project saw the replacement of Timmergreens and Warddykes Primary Schools with new buildings which opened in August 2016.

Phase 2/3a, of the Arbroath schools project includes the replacement of Hayshead, St Thomas, Ladyloan and Muirfield primary schools.

The new Ladyloan and Muirfield primary schools were completed in Summer 2019.

Hayshead Primary School, St Thomas RC Primary School and an early years facility, will be collocated in a new shared campus building on the existing Hayshead site. The individual school identities will remain.

Construction of the shared campus is underway with both schools expected to occupy the building in February 2020.

Phase 1 of works to construct the new Muirfield Primary School were completed in December 2018, with staff and children occupying the new building in time for the beginning of the Spring term in January 2019.

The new building has been constructed within the grounds of the existing school. This approach allowed the school to remain operational throughout the construction period reducing the impact on pupils and staff.

Phase 2 of the works to demolish the old school building and form car parking, drop off and sports pitch were completed in Summer 2019.

    On Tuesday 7 November 2017, the Children and Learning Committee approved the creation of a shared campus for Hayshead Primary School, St Thomas RC Primary School, and an early years facility.

    Formal consultation was carried out in 2017, and a consultation report published.

    Further engagement with key stakeholders, as recommended by Education Scotland was also completed.

    The new campus building is being constructed within the grounds of Hayshead Primary School. This approach allows both current schools to remain operational throughout the construction period, reducing the impact on children and staff.

    Phase 1 construction started in September 2018. With both schools expected to occupy the building in February 2020.

    Parents, staff, children, and visitors to Hayshead Primary School are reminded there is no access to the existing school via Hayshead Road for the duration of the works.

    Phase 2 involving the demolition of the existing Hayshead Primary School, extending the initial playground spaces and formation of the new sports pitches is scheduled for completion by Summer 2020.
