School Estate Management

Nairn Academy

A replacement school building for Nairn Academy was included in Phase 2 of the Scottish Government's Learning Estate Investment Programme announced in December 2020, and funding for the project is included in the reprofiled capital programme approved by Council in January 2021.

The scope of the project is for a complete school building replacement with the changing pavilion, synthetic pitch and grass rugby pitch retained.

Balfour Beatty have been appointed as the design and build contractor working in conjunction with the Council's in-house Property teams to deliver the project. The new building is programmed to be operational from August 2026 with the demolition of the existing building and external works to follow.

A Stakeholder Group has been established and the initial meeting took place in June 2021. Minutes of all Stakeholder Group meetings and other relevant information will be uploaded to the links below.
