Trinity Academy redevelopment
We want to rebuild Trinity Academy in two phases. When both phases are complete the school will have space for 1,200 pupils.
In phase one we want to replace Trinity Academy’s sports facilities. New facilities for the school and the community will be built at Bangholm Recreation Centre.
We already have £10m to build phase one.
Engaging with the community
In partnership with Architecture and Design Scotland, we held engagement events with school staff and learners in October 2018 and with stakeholders in September 2018.
We spoke with
- the parent council from Trinity Academy
- the parent councils from cluster primary schools
- our outdoor learning team
- local residents
- local clubs and community groups
to understand what they need and how they might benefit from the new sports complex.
In January 2019 we used the feedback from the engagement events to produce some concept proposals.
On 28 October 2019 we had an information evening for parents where we presented the latest plans for the sports and outdoor learning centre at Bangholm and suggested a preferred option for the location of the phase two redevelopment of the rest of Trinity Academy. The preferred option outlined at the presentation was to build on the current site in a phased approach between summer 2020 and 2025. The presentation below shows the potential phasing over the years. This option will be considered by the Education, Children and Families Committee on 10 December 2019. This option will be considered by the Education, Children and Families Committee on 10 December 2019.
On 7 November we had an information event for the new sports and outdoor centre at Bangholm.
In June 2019, we sent a newsletter to parents of pupils at Trinity Academy and to local councillors letting them know
- what we’re doing
- events we’re holding
- how parents can get involved in discussions for phase 2.
We will add more newsletters as they are sent out each term.
