Plans lodged to extend Dundee school
A new image has revealed how an extension to Harris Academy in Dundee will look if plans for the project are approved.
Dundee City Council has lodged proposals for an extension to Harris Academy – boosting the school’s capacity by nearly 200 pupils.
The addition to the building would provide six extra classrooms, a staff base and a deputy headteacher’s office.
If plans for the project are approved, a single-storey addition would be built to the rear of the school on an area of playground.
A refurbished Harris Academy, which only opened in 2016, was already nearing capacity when pupils from the closed Menzieshill High School were moved to the building.
Now councillors have approved proposals that will see Perth & Kinross Council pay £4.2 million towards the school’s expansion. That will allow pupils coming from Invergowrie Primary to continue to attend Harris, rather than going to Perth High School.
Council planning officers behind the Harris Academy expansion say the “modern design solution” and material choices presented in the planning application complement those of the existing building.
