Pupils look set to benefit from a range of specialised departments within the new Levenmouth High School, set to open in 2016.

A new artist impression of the state of the art school, which will cost upwards of £45 million, shows an expansive campus with separate departments for languages, music and drama and even a dance studio.

The design of the school is similar to that of new schools recently built in Glenrothes and Dunfermline, which were both constructed by BAM Constrution.The company started work on the Levenmouth site back in the spring of 2014.

The new school will also incorporate an on-site Fife College campus which is set to open to students around the same time as the school.

Councillor Bryan Poole, Fife Council’s executive spokesman for education, young people and children, said this was by far the most exciting project the Council was working on at the moment: “The physical building is impressively great. When we build these new schools, we always learn from before.

“The two newest are Auchmuty in Glenrothes and Queen Margaret in Dunfermline, and I would say Levenmouth is going to be even better.

“But as equally as important as the building is what’s going to go on inside. The pupils will be able to enjoy being taught by teachers through SQA but also college lecturers in HND with the college campus on site. So every pupil leaving the school will come out with what we call a tradable skill. We’re ensuring that every pupil can go on to something very positive.”
