A new Berwickshire High School will replace the old building
Full public consultation is to start next month to identify a future use for a secondary school in the Borders.

Berwickshire High School's present building in Duns is being replaced by new premises on a nearby site.

It is part of a 70m project to construct a total of three new secondary schools across the region.

Scottish Borders Council intends to consult a wide range of local groups and organisations for their ideas on uses for the old building.

The Duns plans are part of a public private partnership deal.

New schools will also be built in Earlston and Eyemouth as part of the plans.

It is hoped that the secondaries will be opened during the 2008/09 school year.
