ABERDEEN City Council’s Capital Programme Committee has noted progress made on the construction of four primary schools in the city, following a £100 million investment.
Construction of a replacement Primary School at Milltimber is scheduled to be completed in Spring 2022 and will see an increased capacity for 434 pupils plus an additional 60 Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) places, from the current capacity of 267, as well as a new 3G, 7-a-side pitch, external outdoor play and learning spaces and a new management suite for staff.
Milltimber School, alongside three other new and replacement schools at Countesswells, Riverbank and Torry which are set to open in 2023, forms part of the Education New Build Programme which will contribute to the Council’s Learning and Childcare Expansion Programme.
Convenor for the Capital Programme Committee, Councillor Marie Boulton, said: “Delivery of new primary schools with modern facilities and additional capacity will allow us to provide the highest standard of education to young people across Aberdeen.
“We look forward to welcoming pupils to the first of these new schools when Milltimber Primary opens its doors this year.
“There have been significant challenges, not least due to the pandemic, to the construction of these schools and it is heartening to see works progressing well at each of them.”
