The new 1,600-place Perth High School is one of the first secondary schools in the UK to be built to Passivhaus standards.

Project:                             Perth High School
Sector:                                Education
Client:                                 Perth & Kinross Council
Delivery authority:          hub East Central Scotland
Main Contractor:              Robertson Construction
Architects:                        NORR

The Project


This new secondary school represents an investment of £80m for Perth & Kinross Council and the Scottish Government Learning Estates Investment Programme. It is being built adjacent to the existing 1960s school, which will then be demolished.


The fitout project worth over £3m is Deanestor’s 14th contract for Robertson and it follows our successful completion of a number of award-winning school projects which includes Bertha Park High School, also for Perth & Kinross Council.



The Furniture Solution


We are fitting out 274 rooms across the new campus and will manufacture or procure more than 2,700 items of fitted and loose furniture, including storage solutions, changing benches, teaching kitchen, learning walls, tables and chairs, equipment for sports and arts, workbenches and tools for technology and engineering.



Designed to Meet Low Carbon Targets


Due to open Summer 2025, the new school has a triangular design and will be built over three levels. Facilities will include a double-height theatre, breakout spaces, and indoor and outdoor dining.

It will be built to Passivhaus standards with a high level of thermal efficiency to meet its low carbon targets.



The Customer Perspective

Gary Bushnell, Chief Executive, hub East Central Scotland:

“We have worked closely with Perth & Kinross Council and partners from the inception of this project and it is great to see work now progressing well on site. It will provide another high-quality, highly sustainable facility that will serve the community for many years to come.”
