The new campus is scheduled to open in Summer 2024.

Newly released drone footage shows preparations are underway for work to begin on Scotland’s first “super-campus” being built in Dunfermline.

The Dunfermline Learning Campus, in the east of the town, is to incorporate a new Woodmill High School, a new St Columba’s RC High School and new Fife College buildings.

Enabling work on the site of the £180 million project got underway last year with pupils and council leaders attending an official ‘ground breaking’ ceremony last month.

The new campus will be purpose-built and fully accessible for all pupils, parents, staff and community users.

What will be included on the campus?

The two schools at Dunfermline Learning Campus will offer:

  • community facilities
  • internal sports halls, gym halls, fitness suite and dance studio
  • two external grass sports pitches and three all-weather sports pitches
  • external tennis courts and multi-use games areas
  • a pioneering ‘Learning Lab’ featuring performance analysis, media studio, recording booth, food technology and extensive creative project space

The college element of the campus will cover almost five acres and incorporate a general teaching building, a large engineering and construction division, a four-court sports hall and social and civic spaces.
