Public exhibition for new Prestwick Educational Campus

 11 October 2019  |  


South Ayrshire Council is holding a public exhibition giving people the opportunity to view and discuss the exciting proposals for Prestwick's new educational campus prior to the submission of a planning application.

The exhibition will be held at Glenburn Primary School between 4:00pm and 8:00pm on Wednesday 23 October.

The exhibition will include designs for the joint campus which will replace both the existing Glenburn Primary School and St Ninian's Primary School buildings. The new campus will also incorporate the new standalone early year's centre.

Subject to planning, work on the £19.3 million campus should start in July 2020 and be completed in December 2022.

The two schools will retain their identity, staff and pupils while benefitting from the ability to share high quality internal and external facilities.

Once completed, the innovative campus will transform learning with outdoor classroom facilities, multi-use games halls, social areas for play and even garden areas for young people to grow plants and vegetables.

Councillor William Grant, Children and Young People Portfolio Holder for South Ayrshire Council said: "Through our school build programme, we are transforming learning in South Ayrshire.

"We are also ensuring our schools are accessible to the wider community and the first rate facilities can be enjoyed by everyone.

"There has already been positive engagement with pupils, parents, staff and the wider Prestwick community and we want this to continue. I would encourage anyone with views and ideas for the new campus to head along to the exhibition, so we can incorporate their feedback wherever possible."

Comments on the project can be made at the exhibition or directly to the agent no later than 4 November 2019.

For anyone that can't make the exhibition, information about the new campus and how to have a say will be available on the Council website from 23 October www.south-ayrshire.gov.uk/schools/future-needs/
