Description Of Works

Auchengray Primary School serves the rural communities of Woolfords, Auchengray, Tarbrax and the surrounding areas. It is a non-denominational primary school, which provides education from P1–P7 with children then transferring to Biggar High School for S1.

The original school was built in 1870. As part of South Lanarkshire’s Schools Modernisation Programme the new building was constructed in 2015 and opened to pupils on 8th January 2016. It comprises one classroom, one break out area and a hall which is used as a canteen and for PE, assemblies and events. Meals are prepared, cooked and served on the premises. Outside there is a playground, multi-use games area (MUGA) and a grassy area which can be used during the year to enhance outdoor learning.
