Carrongrange High School

Carrongrange High School is the only Secondary School in the Falkirk district for pupils with moderate, severe and complex Additional Support Needs. It is a purpose-built special school and moved from Larbert to its present site to open in August 2017.  The site had formed part of the playing fields of Moray Primary School.  Those attending are taught in classes with a maximum of 10 pupils and teaching is tailored to the individual’s needs.

With capacity for 190 pupils over its two floors, the facilities include an assembly hall, classrooms, staff areas, kitchen, lift, gym hall, swimming and hydro pool, and a sensory garden. There is also a training flat.  The construction project team consisted of: Morgan Sindall (Architect) (Civil & Structural) (Principal Designer), Hawthorne Boyle Ltd (Mechanical & Electrical) and Ogilvie Construction Ltd (Contractor).  The construction period was eight months but before that could begin an unexploded ordnance survey had to be undertaken because the site had been within the perimeter of Grangemouth Airfield which had been used by the RAF during the Second World War.  The construction cost was £17.3 million.  The most distinctive external feature is the clean reflective cladding giving a contrast between the black panels of the entrance area and the general white background.
