Broomlands Primary School takes full advantage of its spectacular landscape setting with a design that quite literally reaches out to embrace the surrounding green space and woodland. We have developed a new generation school design for Scottish Borders Council inspired by the new Curriculum for Excellence which places an increased emphasis on external learning and external classroom provision. An early years facility also contributes to the schools mixed activity.
The school incorporates space that can dynamically respond to different styles of learning whether that is on an intimate one-to-one basis or in larger clustered type teaching arrangements. Notably, the school also takes advantage of an ideal orientation with classroom elevations facing either east or west to avoid glare, overheating, and helping encourage cross ventilation. Community sports areas open up towards the south to create a complete learning campus environment.
