Scotland outlines schools plan

26 September 2012 The Scottish government has unveiled the latest round of schools to receive a share of its £1.25bn Schools for the Future programme.
Thirty schools have been identified to be built under the third and final phase of the initiative, which will have delivered 67 schools across the country by the time it is completed.

An extra 12 schools have been included in the project due to savings achieved by the Scottish Futures Trust during procurement.

“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,” said Scottish Education Secretary Michael Russell. “More schools are being built, and faster, but for the same level of investment as originally planned.

“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.”

The 30 schools in the final wave are:
