Gordonstoun announces £15m upgrade

  • 15th April 2024

Gordonstoun School in Elgin, Moray has announced plans to invest around £15million on facilities, including a solar farm and a new base for its coastguard service, The Northern Scot has reported..

The school has also obtained planning permission for a building to house its sixth form and its business and enterprise classes, which will open later this year, and which has been sponsored by the Mikellides family who are currently parents at the school. The building is expected to open in 2026.

Gordonstoun stated it intends to begin building its solar farm by the end of the year and that it will be linked to the national grid and provide low-carbon energy for the school and, the school said, perhaps for some of its neighbours.

Gordonstoun’s principal Lisa Kerr said: “As Gordonstoun celebrates its 90th year, it’s thrilling to be announcing these projects which both look back to our founding ethos of service to others and forward to a more sustainable future for the school.”
