Invergarven’s New Building
In 2018, the new school building at Invergarven opened it’s doors to staff and pupils. The new building was purpose built for our young adults and has some exciting new features.
In June 2016, it was announced that planning had started for an exciting new school building for the community that would “transform the education of children and young people with additional support needs in Girvan and South Carrick.”
The old Invergarven building was built in 1870 and the building itself, which sits on Henrietta Street, had reached the end of it’s usable life as a school and was no longer fit for purpose.
The new school would increase capacity by around a third with 20 children and young people able to be taught at any one time (up from 15 at the old school).
Our new school opened it’s doors on the 22nd August 2018 at it’s new location of Coalpots Road, Girvan, KA26 0EX. The school is situated right behind Girvan Academy which opens up new collaboration opportunities between the two schools.
At the heart of the new school design was our young adults and our community. The new school demonstrates exciting and innovative features to support teaching including:
- 5 new classrooms
- Rebound Therapy room
- Hydropteraphy room
- Softplay Room
- Sensory Room
- Gymnasium and new cafeteria/ kitchen
- Play park
