The Scottish Government has detailed plans to replace 26 schools in the first phase of its £1bn modernisation programme.

Morgan Sindall will build the £42m Maybole Community Campus in Ayrshire

New schools will be built from Aberdeenshire to Ayrshire, many in new-style community campuses.

The Scottish Government will contribute up to £275m in partnership with local authorities across the country to replace 26 schools, with a further phase of investment to be announced within 12 months.

Several of the projects bring together nurseries, schools, colleges and universities in multi-purpose campuses for pupils aged from three to 18 years.
