Schools in hunt for design awards

Eyemouth school
Eyemouth High School opened to students earlier this year and is part of a 72m public private partnership scheme

Two new schools in the Borders have been shortlisted for a UK construction and design honour.

Eyemouth and Berwickshire High Schools feature in the Building Schools for the Future category of the annual Builder & Engineer Awards.

The schools are part of a £72m public private partnership between Scottish Borders Council and Scottish Borders Education Partnership (SBEP).

The award winners will be announced at a ceremony in Manchester next month.

Berwickshire High School in Duns opened in February this year and can cater for 800 pupils.

The Eyemouth facility followed shortly afterwards with a roll of 500 students.

The schools were designed by architects 3DReid and built by Graham Construction.
