A PRIVATE school in Glasgow hopes to build a new sport, music, and wellness centre to be used by pupils and West End residents.

The Glasgow Academy has invited locals to attend a community exhibition to learn more about the ambitious proposal.

Project 100 seeks to create world-class facilities at its Kelvinbridge campus, replacing and consolidating the existing sports and music facilities into one, multi-purpose hub.

If the plans are given the green light by Glasgow City Council, The Glasgow Academy would invite external sports clubs and community groups to enjoy the facilities on an ongoing basis.

Attendees at the community exhibition will get the opportunity to learn about the proposal, which is complete with a state-of-the-art swimming pool, indoor games hall and outdoor sports pitch, suitable for a variety of sports and activities.

Careful consideration has also been made to supporting the school’s ability to enhance the creativity and wellbeing of pupils and visitors, with proposals including the creation of safe social areas, flexible learning spaces, musical instrument practice rooms and quiet zones.

Matthew Pearce, rector at the school, said: “The Glasgow Academy is immensely proud of its sporting tradition, empowering children and offering the widest possible range of ways to stay physically and mentally healthy.

“We have a transformative opportunity to enhance the wellbeing of our pupils, today and long into the future.

“We are looking forward to sharing our vision with the wider community that has been designed to create opportunities for our pupils and the wider West End community, that we already have a great relationship with.”

The community exhibition, held at The Glasgow Academy Sports Hall, from 4pm-8pm on Wednesday, June 22, is open to all members of the local community.
