BORDERERS are being invited to see how Jedburgh's new school is progressing.

Work began on the £32 million intergenerational campus last summer.

And on Thursday, March 21 an open day will be held at the site.

Leader of Scottish Borders Council Shona Haslam said: “There is real excitement building as we approach one year until the new Jedburgh campus opens.

“Engagement with the people of Jedburgh has been key to this project since its inception, and is continuing with the upcoming Open Doors Day event and the information session taking place for community groups, alongside the ongoing consultation to provide a name for the new campus.

“We are determined to continue to improve our school estate to ensure it is fit for purpose for our young people, staff and local communities.”

The new campus at Hartrigge Park will replace Jedburgh Grammar, Howdenburn and Parkside primary schools.

And it will have provision for nursery, primary and secondary school children; while community facilities will include a multi-use games area, 2G hockey pitch, 3G sports pitch, running track, external changing pavilion and rural skills area.

Councillor Carol Hamilton, SBC’s executive member for children and young people, said: “I would encourage the local community to find out more and get involved in the events being held in the coming weeks and months.

“For those who cannot make the Open Doors Day, we have provided a virtual tour of the exterior of the building on social media, and will be adding another of the inside of the building in the coming weeks.

“Excellent progress is being made with construction of the campus, which means it remains on course to open to Jedburgh’s young people and the community in spring 2020.”

Bruce Dickson, of contractors BAM Construction, added: “As members of BuildUK, we fully support Open Doors Day which is designed to change the public perception of the construction industry and what we do.

“Jedburgh Campus is perfect for this, being both a landmark community building in terms of design and purpose and also an exemplar construction site run by a superb team.

“We hope that all of our visitors will get an enjoyable and interesting insight into the world of construction and it will probably not be what they expect.”
