This area originally formed part of the stables of Ranfurlie and after World War Two it was comprised of old wooden huts used for a gymnasium, a Science laboratory, the tuckshop and classrooms. From the 1960s, as the ground floor west breeze way area of the ‘new’ building, it has housed over time the Bookroom, Staffroom, the Health Centre, Tuckshop and Student area.

A new Food Studies centre was opened in 2019 with the Tuckshop behind it.
