We are delighted that following a long wait permission has finally been granted for a “new” Portobello High School
The site for this is on Milton Road and the school will occupy part of the park. The building has been designed sympathetically with the landscape in mind.
Balfour Beatty is the contractor who have been appointed to take forward the build and they will work closely with a Project team to deliver the school for a move in date of August 2016.
It is anticipated that links will be made with the project to allow pupils to watch the build (through live web links) and there will be other opportunities for pupils to be involved.
Already some pupils (including some from the feeder Primary Schools) have been involved with Space Strategy Design Consultants to look at how the shared social space on the bottom floor of the building should look.
