News that the new Kintore School will be delayed by a year has been met with dismay in Kintore.Kintore School opened in 2006 was soon too small for the number of pupils
Work had been due to start shortly following planning approval for the new school. The planned opening date was August 2015.
News reports were that the consortium of builders involved in the Kintore East expansion of Kintore had advised the council that they were not in a position to hand over the site. Aberdeenshire Council was reported as saying it would pursue a compulsory purchase order to secure the land.
The primary school in Kintore was replaced with a new school in 2006. It was designed for just over 415 pupils but soon became too small. There are currently around 600 pupils.
