Moving into a former janitor’s lodge is just one of the measures being considered by the council to alleviate capacity issues at an Aberdeen school.
Council officers were asked by committee to consider options to address short-term capacity issues at the existing St Peter’s School.
The main school building includes four classrooms, a gym/dining hall, library, general purpose room and offices.
Due to continued increases in the pupil roll over a number of years, the library and general purpose room are currently also used as classrooms.
Other measures include a further three rooms on the first floor of Old Aberdeen House being converted for use as classrooms.
A report, which will be considered by members of the education and children’s services committee, said: “After receiving notification from land and property assets colleagues that the janitor’s lodge, which is located within the St Peter’s School site, had become vacant, officers have made arrangements for the building to be transferred to education and children’s services.
“This will allow the school to make use of the lodge for further ancillary space for general purpose use, as well as additional storage space and a potential staff area.”
Members will consider the report on Thursday.
