Glasgow Academy unveils 'transformative' plan

Local residents are invited to see the proposals

The Glasgow Academy is inviting local residents to a community exhibition next week.

The fee-paying school is proposing to build a sport, music and wellbeing centre at its Kelvinbridge campus.

It says the facilities will be for the use of pupils and the community and describes them as “world class”.

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 “transformative proposal”.

Quiet zones

The centre would include a state-of-the-art swimming pool, indoor games hall and outdoor sports pitch, suitable for a variety of sports and activities.
