Holmes Miller, on behalf of Morgan Sindall, has submitted a planning application for the creation of a new educational campus for West Dunbartonshire Council.

Constructed on the current Renton Primary school site, the new campus will comprise a new Renton Primary School, Renton Language & Communication Unit (an Additional Support Needs enhanced support setting) and a new Riverside Early Learning and Childcare Centre (ELCC).

Thorough stakeholder consultation solidified WDC Education Learning & Attainment’s aspiration to create a forward looking education facility providing variety and delight throughout the children’s learning journey.  The facility takes on the role of ‘Learning Ladder’ with stages of learning configured vertically to reflect the stages of maturation of children and young people and the changing ways in which they engage with learning as they develop.

External learning plays a crucial role in this development with the ground level playground complimented with external terraces at the upper levels to provide direct access to the learning zones.

Construction work is programmed to commence in 2020.
