Clydebank & Erskine, Erskine
The school has been built on the site of the previous Park Mains
High which has a current roll of 1350 pupils. It will accommodate
pupils from Erskine and the surrounding villages of Bishopton,
Inchinnan and Langbank.
The design features a teaching space arranged across three
levels and a range of enhanced PE facilities including a four-court
games hall, gym, dance studio and fitness suite.
A multi-use assembly hall with a main stage and tiered
stadium-style seating is also planned. This will accommodate local
community activities including drama groups.
The central atrium can be used as a dining and social area. This
will open on to an outside seating area and playground
A series of 'break-out' spaces outside classrooms are planned and
there is also scope for more flexible use of classroom space.
Work began on the building in January 2011 and the school was
completed and opened in time for the new school year starting in
Jan 2011 - August 2012
Between 2003 and 2014 Clyde Waterfront was a strategic
partnership comprising the Scottish Government, Scottish
Enterprise, Glasgow City, Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire
Councils. Its purpose was to promote the economic, social and
environmental regeneration of 13 miles of the River Clyde from
Glasgow city centre to Dumbarton.
