North West Community Campus

The North West Community Campus is a new school in Lochside, Dumfries. The facility brings together Lochside Primary School, St Ninians Primary School, Maxwelltown High School and Langlands School.

Staff and pupils move into the new school on Tuesday, 21 August 2018.

The single building incorporates all of the required facilities for nursery, primary and secondary education. The new facility will help ease the transition process for pupils throughout their education.

The new campus will also provide facilities available to the local community.

Open day for parents and pupils - Sunday 19 August

All parents and pupils are welcome to come along and meet some of the teachers and project team who will be happy to talk to you about the school.

We are looking forward to meeting you to the new North West Community Campus on Sunday.


The open day will start at 2pm.

4.15pm - 4.45pm will be a quiet half hour.  For any pupil who would feel more comfortable visiting the school when it is a bit quieter, then we would be pleased to show your our school during this time.

Meeting Point:

The main entrance to the North West Community Campus.

We will have staff to welcome you to the facility and to ask you to sign in for your visit.


Parking is very limited at the campus.

At the North West Community Campus, we encourage a healthy and active lifestyle.  We would encourage parents and pupils to walk or to cycle to the open day on Sunday.  We have cycle racks and dedicated buggy parking.
