Picking up the keys Headteacher Iain Hughes said: “The excitement is reaching fever pitch now as we get closer to actually moving in. The old school is a well-loved building with a lot of history behind it, but the opportunities which the new building open to us are beyond compare.
“This isn’t just a school, it is a community building which will sit right at the heart of the community.”
Pupils and staff will migrate to the new school in June.
