Work on new £17.5m Grangemouth secondary school to begin
Construction work is set to begin on a new £17.5m secondary school in Grangemouth for young people with additional support needs.
The new school will replace the current Carrongrange School and will be built on land next to Moray Primary School.
It will accommodate 190 pupils and is expected to be completed in August next year.
The school will include sensory rooms, swimming and hydro-therapy pools, a life skills training flat and a garden.
Falkirk Council's director of children's services, Robert Naylor said: "The new school will provide pupils with a welcoming and flexible learning environment across two floors and will include modern specialist classroom equipment and facilities to meet the needs of all pupils."
Half of the cost of the new school is being provided from the Scottish government's Schools for the Future programme with the remainder coming from the council's capital programme.
