Dunfermline High School in Scotland
Dunfermline High School has a historic past. In 1128, when Dunfermline was the capital of Scotland, King David I endowed a school as part of Dunfermline Abbey. It was formally founded as a separate institution in 1468. During the reformation the original buildings were destroyed but reconstructed by Queen Anne of Denmark, wife of King James, by the end of the 16th century. The school has now moved into an environmentally-friendly £40 million building sited on the existing playing fields, with a projected occupancy of 1,800 pupils.
The school was awarded Best Education and Community Building in Scotland by The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS).
