Help name new Jedburgh campus

Jedburgh

Published: Friday, 21st December 2018

Ideas are now being sought for a name for the new Jedburgh Intergenerational Community Campus.

Suggestions are welcomed from anyone in the community and inspiration could come from the history of the town, famous local people, iconic locations or any other creative ideas.

The most popular and appropriate names will be shared with Councillors and the Community Council to create a shortlist, which the public will then be asked to vote upon in spring 2019.

How do I submit my suggested name?

Suggested names should be submitted to:

Work on the new campus is progressing well, with the frame of the new building - which will replace Jedburgh Grammar, Howdenburn and Parkside primaries - being installed.

The games hall section of the new campus has been completed with work continuing on the atrium, canteen area and the nursery area.

The campus will have provision for nursery, primary and secondary school children alongside further education.

Community facilities will include a multi-use games area, a 2G hockey pitch, 3G sports pitch, 100m running track, external changing pavilion and rural skills area. The campus is still on course to be completed in spring 2020.

Councillor Carol Hamilton, Executive Member for Children and Young People

“We have already had some great ideas for the name of the new campus, and would love to receive more ahead of the 16 January deadline.

“We realise how important this project is to Jedburgh which is why a public vote will be held to choose a winning name of this exciting community asset.

“We look forward to further engagement with the community on this project next year, which will see this innovative facility move closer to completion.”

Project details

We are taking forward the facility alongside development partner Hub South East Scotland and appointed main contractor BAM Construction.

The funding for the new campus was confirmed by the Scottish Government in 2017, as one of four projects to share £28m from the latest phase of the Scottish Government’s £1.8 billion ‘Schools for the Future’ programme.
