Next wave of 30 Scottish schools: Full list

Grant Prior 12 years ago

The Scottish Government has confirmed the next 30 schools to be built under its £1.25bn Schools for the Future programme.

The programme will see the construction of 67 new schools across Scotland, by March 2018.

Building work on a dozen schools is expected to start within the next 12-18 months.

An extra 12 schools will be built under the third and final phase of Schools for the Future, after £80m was brought forward in last week’s budget.

Education Secretary Michael Russell said: “The first two phases of Scotland’s Schools for the Future programme are already lifting thousands of pupils out of poor quality buildings.

“We have met every local authority’s request for priority builds and added an extra 12 schools to the programme because of the Scottish Futures Trust’s vigorous commitment to value for money.

“More schools are being built, and faster, but for the same level of investment as originally planned

“This is also fantastic news for Scotland’s construction sector.

“By identifying all 30 schools now, we can get the projects moving and offer some certainty to one of Scotland’s key industries, providing a welcome boost to our economic recovery.

“I look forward to seeing how these projects will develop in the coming months and will endeavour to visit as many as I can.”
