The new Winchburgh and Sinclair Academies, the Sport and Well Being Hub and Holy Family Primary School form a critical component of the Winchburgh regeneration project providing key public infrastructure to support the successful transformation of the former shale mining village into a significant thriving community with placemaking at the heart of the development.

Each of the school’s designs provides a significant step change in the delivery of teaching and learning with a move away from didactic teaching spaces, instead promoting a range of learning settings, with the majority of classroom spaces adopting a three-sided arrangement which opens onto circulation, break out and a range of flexible learning spaces. This approach offers a unique school environment, benefitting from fantastic natural light and a wide range of spaces, which are interesting and enjoyable places to learn and teach.
