A superschool in Dumfries has been officially named.
The site, which during its construction has been known as the North West Campus, will be called pretty much just that – the North West Community Campus.
Councillors agreed the name at a meeting of children, young people and lifelong learning committee.
Last May College Loch, Greenhill, Hillside and Woodlands were shortlisted for a public vote but that failed to produce a favourite.
Jeff Leaver, chairman of the CYPLL committee, said: “It’s the suitable thing to do. It’s been referred to as the North West Campus and it’s a community base as well as a community school.
“It’s also something we want to build on in the future. The education campuses in North West Dumfries and Dalbeattie are second to none in their quality.”
The £28 million project is due to be finished in June and Langlands is due to move in before the summer.
Maxwelltown High, plus Lochside and St Ninian’s Primaries, will be merged into the facility. It will house 432 secondary places, 410 primary pupils, 60 nursery pupils and the new Langlands will have 20 additional needs places.
Councillor Dave McKie said: “It brings everybody together and people can identify with other areas around it.”
