Together with the Development Partner, hub South West Scotland Ltd, Dumfries Learning Town brings all the schools across Dumfries together to deliver education on a ‘whole town’ basis.

North West Campus

The North West Campus is a new school in Lochside, Dumfries. The facility brings together Lochside Primary School, St Ninians Primary School, Maxwelltown High School and Langlands School. A single building incorporates all of the required facilities for nursery, primary and secondary education. The new facility also includes a sports hub including external pitches, redeveloped outdoor space, social space for community groups and a public library.

The Bridge

The Bridge will help people develop specialist skills and knowledge that they need for further education and work. The Bridge was built next to the King George V Sports Complex on Glasgow Road as part of the Dumfries Learning Town Project. The Bridge also includes a high specification recording studio, green room and live studio designed by RMP to BBC standards.

Redeveloping St Joseph’s College

The redevelopment of the Grade B-listed St Joseph’s College was part of the Dumfries Learning Town Project. The school on Craig’s Road in Dumfries has been transformed at a cost of around £24 million.

RMP provided full design and acoustic services and worked closely with the project team to ensure that Dumfries Learning Town successfully met the requirements of BB93.
