New School Development

Trinity Academy redevelopment

We are rebuilding Trinity Academy in two phases. When both phases are complete the school will have space for 1,200 pupils.

Phase one opened in August 2022 with the replacing of Trinity Academy’s sports facilities. New facilities for the school and the community have been built at Bangholm Recreation Centre.

View the planning application for phase one.


The design process for the replacement and refurbishment of the school on the main site is progressing. The plan is to keep and refurbish the Victorian building, which is the red sandstone building on Craighall Road.  We would then demolish all the other buildings and construct new facilities which will adjoin the Victorian building.
