Tour new Academy
Ayr Academy are giving the surrounding community the chance to see the brand- new £ 25m school up close on Saturday.
Work began on the school at Craigie Estate in January 2016 and it opened to pupils in August.
The former Academy building opened in 1880. Its replacement has space for up to 1000 pupils with two learning plazas, two gyms, a multi- use hall, sports pitches and a fitness room.
South Ayrshire Council’s portfolio holder for lifelong learning, William Grant, said that the new facility hopes that there will be a high turnout on Saturday.
He said: “As well as transforming education for generations of young people the school has also been designed to become a community hub. It’s much more than a school. It will be a great venue for sporting activites and community meetings”
Visitors should report to the reception area between 10am and 1pm.
Staff will be available to answer questions and explain how the new facility will be used. Tours will then take place around the new campus.
