The new Crieff Primary School and nursery on a new site adjacent to the Strathearn Community Campus and shares many design features with Oakbank Primary School.
The schools were built by BAM Construction to designs by Holmes Miller and the project was managed by hub East Central Scotland.

This is a major education initiative, which was delivered on time and on budget, achieving best value for the communities that it serves.”
