Proposal

The proposed new campus development in the Broomfield area of Cumnock, provisionally labelled the Knockroon Learning and Enterprise Campus, would include :

  • a merged primary school, incorporating Greenmill Primary School and Early Childhood Centre and Barshare Primary School, Supported Learning Centre and Early Childhood Centre
  • Hillside School
  • a merged Auchinleck Academy and Cumnock Academy and Supported Learning Centre

The proposals also include further education and business enterprise facilities.  The campus design will be sympathetic to the architecture of Cumnock, continuing the theme at the neighbouring Knockroon development, and will also include excellent sports and recreation facilities accessible by the community. Parents, staff, children and young people will be given a role in developing the design for the campus.
