Following a competition, Corstorphine + Wright was appointed as Adams’ Grammar schools architects to undertake a redevelopment process in two phases.
Phase one saw the creation of a sixth form centre comprising a bistro/café area, soft-seating social area, sixth form office and tutor room, toilets and a lecture theatre. A mezzanine level was created to maximise teaching and learning space.
The second phase focused on the conversion of a derelict 19th Century coach house into a music department. This involved refurbishing the Coach House to incorporate a large classroom space for music teaching and a digitally-equipped breakout area to enable composition creativity.
An ensemble room dedicated to recording was also incorporated, capable of accommodating small groups of musicians.
