Aberdeen school launches £10m design contest

Camphill School Aberdeen

Special needs centre Camphill seeks architect to upgrade campuses

A globally respected special needs institution in Scotland has launched a call for architects to design a £10m upgrade of two of its three campuses.

Camphill School Aberdeen was founded in 1940 by a group of Austrian refugees inspired by the teachings of Rudolf Steiner. An independent charity, it offers education care and therapy for children and young people with additional support needs, either as day pupils or on a residential basis.

However, despite offering what it describes as “world class” facilities, the school says the existing buildings on its Murtle Estate and Camphill Estate no longer meet its specific requirements and need to be upgraded over the next decade through a financial commitment that is already in place.
