Raploch Community Campus
The Campus is a landmark education project for Scotland that accommodates a diverse group of end users with unique space and layout requirements. The educational environment encompasses, in totality, whole life learning, from nursery, primary, to further education. It is an excellent example of a community inclusive campus.
The Campus is a flagship project at the centre of the regeneration masterplan for the Raploch area of Stirling. Subsequent to the Raploch area of Stirling being granted Urban Regeneration Pathfinder status by the Scottish Government in 2004, the Campus was the first building to be completed under the £120 million initiative.
This campus is one of the most innovative facilities in the UK; the whole concept was for the shared campus facilities to service each other and the community at large. For example, the Hotel and Catering department uses the kitchen facilities to prepare food for the school children; they also run the public cafe that provides revenue for the facility. Similarly, the health and beauty department provide their services to the local community, thus bringing in further revenue to the campus. In addition to this the campus has aided with the physical regeneration of the area.

As part of a larger regeneration of the Raploch area, the Community Campus was intended to be catalyst for change, a key element for the community, created at the very heart of Raploch. Stirling Council was keen to consolidate separate educational facilities within the area into one community facility.
The solution was to create a civic building at the very core of the regeneration masterplan, and that would be recognised as one of the key drivers in re-establishing the values of the community. The central spine brings together the co-located schools, nursery, further education faculties and sports facilities.
The new Campus includes Our Lady’s Primary School, Raploch Primary School, Castleview School, Kildean School, Raploch Nursery, Primary Pupil Support and SLANT, as well as providing Forth Valley College with teaching accommodation, extensive community sports facilities and office spaces. The design embodies civic presence while encouraging forward-thinking educational needs.
