A sum of £15.675m will be invested in Stewarton Academy over the next six years which will include refurbishment of the existing building, improved sports facilities and the construction of a new extension.
- £7.000m for the extension
- £2.000m to upgrade the sports facilities
- £4.175m to improve heating, electrical systems, ventilation systems, roofing, accessibility adaptations and hospitality and catering facilities
- £2.500m for additional support needs provision
- Following an extensive programme of refurbishment to the main reception and administrative areas of the school, discussions continue to develop a brief for the extension and upgrades to the school building.
