The Newbattle Centre will host up to 1,200 pupils when it opens its doors in 2018, encompassing a high school, gym, library, swimming pool and all-weather sports pitch across some 15,714sq/m of space.
Councillor Bob Constable said: “As a council, we want to make sure we have a school and community facility that exceeds the requirements of today’s Curriculum for Excellence. We also want to provide great sport and leisure facilities that will benefit the school and the wider community.”
