Maybole school confirmed
A £ 42m superschool t o re p l a c e C a r r i c k Academy got the green light after landing Scottish Government funding. The mega Maybole campus could boast a swimming pool and would be home to the high school, three primaries and a nusery. The plan is for Cairn and Gardenrose primaries to merge. St Cuthbert’s Primary will also have a new base on the site. A nursery is also among the proposals. And there is to be two all weather pitches for rugby and football. Councillor Brian Connolly said: “It is fantastic news and it is all guns blazing now to go ahead and start planning. “All the funding is in place. We will up the level of consultation. “It is one of the things the town has been crying out for over many years.” Construction by Morgan Sindal could start next summer.
It’s estimated there would be about 1,370 children on the campus once it is built and operational.
