Engagement on new Fraserburgh school begins

Following the commitment Aberdeenshire Council has made to progress the delivery of a new Fraserburgh primary school, an informal engagement process is now underway ahead of a statutory consultation.

The proposal requires both Fraserburgh North School and St Andrews School to close and merge into one new-build school. The council set aside funding for the project in its Capital Plan in 2021 and an online survey is the local community’s opportunity to say what they would like from the new facility.

In addition, an in-person information session is planned for Wednesday 11 May 2022 at 6pm within St Andrews Infant School Building. This is open to all members of the local community to have your say on the merger proposal.

Aberdeenshire Council’s Head of Education Vincent Docherty explained: “We are really pleased to see this development moving forward. This investment in Fraserburgh will provide our school communities with some fantastic opportunities to shape designs from start to finish and benefit from all of the learning that comes with a building project.”
