Peterhead Councillors Welcome Academy Progress

>> 26 February 2018

Peterhead SNP councillors Stephen Smith and Anne Allan have welcomed further progress on a new Academy Campus for Peterhead.

Following the change of council Administration in 2015, the new SNP/Labour Partnership committed Aberdeenshire Council to a new academy for Peterhead. Now, the council has confirmed its commitment to ongoing investment and regeneration in Peterhead by agreeing in principle for a multimillion pound community campus to be built in the town.

Councillors approved including costs for the £71 million community campus in the council’s capital plan for 2023 – 2028 when they agreed the budget on 8 February; meaning a primary one pupil enrolling at Peterhead Central School for the next school year will be among the first intake of the new school.

Peterhead South & Cruden councillor Stephen Smith said:

“This is the next logical step in the process initiated by the previous Administration and I am pleased the council’s commitment to a new Peterhead Academy has been maintained and is being progressed.”

Peterhead North & Rattray SNP councillor Anne Allan added:

"I welcome this further information about Peterhead Academy. However, the actual design will be the subject of much consultation with pupils, staff and the wider community to ensure we get a school that everyone in Peterhead can be proud of.”

To date the council has carried out an assessment to determine the best solution. Public consultations on ideal locations have been held but further consultation will follow.
