Pupils regularly cite the city centre location of the school as one of their most favoured features of Gordon’s. The atmospheric quadrangle, in front of the original ‘Auld Hoose’, is the heart of an impressive range of modern facilities. These have been designed and modernised with two aims in mind: that they should reflect best practice in learning and teaching and that they should form a well coordinated campus.
Following the building of the Art and Social Subjects building in 1994 and the Library in 2001, 2009 saw a major redevelopment of the campus. New departments for English, Maths and Business Studies were accompanied by a stunning Drama Studio and Music Room. Most impressive is the brand new Junior School. Every classroom has a 360 degree layout, teaching wall including interactive whiteboard; the glass walls and moving partitions create a wonderful sense of space for the small classes. Specialist Art, Music and Science rooms and a Drama studio which opens into a theatre make the pupils both proud and stimulated by their learning environment.
Phase Two of the redevelopment of the Robert Gordon’s College campus has created what is believed to be the largest school Science and Technology Centre in Britain and a new Centre for Performing Arts.
In Phase Three we will be looking to improve the onsite sports facilities.
Our ambitious plans demonstrate our commitment to our pupils and their future locally, nationally and internationally.
