The Madras site

The comprehensive secondary school founded in 1833 by the Rev. Dr Andrew Bell will move from its current site after Fife Council agreed to the purchase of land from the University of St Andrews earlier this year.

Located a mile south of St Andrews town centre, the 15.5-acre site includes the ‘B’ listed Madras College buildings, comprising the 109,764 sq ft school and its 15,672 sq ft sports hall, associated car parking, playing fields and amenity space. 

Jonathan Reid, partner in Shepherd Chartered Surveyors’ Dundee office, said: “This site is identified in the Fife Local Development Plan for educational purposes, reflecting its current use. Its northern boundary may vary depending upon final layout of development and accommodation of existing pitches for Greyfriars Primary to the immediate north.

“The buildings are Category ‘B’ listed. A Design and Development Framework identifying key design and development principles that should be considered for any re-use or redevelopment proposal will be made available to all interested parties.”

The site is expected to be available for development in August 2021.
