Waid Academy to get underway after planning approval is granted
Fife Council is to press ahead with delivery of the BDP designed Waid Academy after planning approval was granted for the 800-pupil Anstruther secondary.

BAM Construction has been awarded the contract to build the school which will also double-up as a community hub, housing council offices, a library and police station, all housed within a single building wrapped by a projecting stone 'harbour' wall.

The school will also incorporate the existing Anstruther Primary and a shared sports facility kitted out with an all-weather rugby and hockey pitch.

Pupils are set to move into the new school in March 2017.

I wonder if anyone in the Scottish Government wonders if we are just repeating the same mistakes of old

Still at least we have aYear of Architecture to look forward too

Wonder if this will be the highlight

There's a lot to be said for combining facilities. Done well, it is definitely the way forward, particularly for rural and semi-rural communities. My local pub some years ago in Englandshire doubled as the Post Office. It stopped the village losing both.
