Door open days

Harmeny School is a residential special school working with children who have complex social, emotional and behavioural needs. Richard Murphy Architects designed a courtyard development of new classrooms and residential cottages, sympathetic to the original house, which was designed by Robert Rowland Anderson in 1906 and extended by Robert Lorimer in 1907.

Year Of Young People: Harmeny supports vulnerable children, using sector-leading practices and approaches to help children who have had difficult starts to their lives. Visitors will hear about Harmeny?s innovative practice model and service developments, as well as the importance of Harmeny?s buildings and grounds in meeting the needs of the children there.
