Pupils at Law Primary in North Berwick are enjoying learning in their new school extension, thanks to an ongoing schools investment programme by East Lothian Council.

Law Primary’s new extension, which opened to pupils after the October break, includes 16 classrooms and break out areas, a tutorial room, a new general purpose room, resource rooms and storage space, a meeting room and new staff offices, as well as a library. The contract value for the whole construction project, which also includes further phases of work providing new shared accommodation including a large three-court hall, is £7.6 million. The total project value is £8.45 million, which includes the cost of fees, IT, and furniture.  

Councillor Shamin Akhtar, Cabinet Spokesperson for Education and Children’s Services, said:

“It’s fantastic that this first phase of extension at Law Primary School has been completed and is occupied by the school. To see the children now enjoying this new, improved building is really wonderful.  

“The council is strongly committed to ensuring that all our children have the best possible start in life, and these improvement works part of a wider investment by the council to spend almost £100 million in new or expanded schools over three years throughout the whole of East Lothian.”
