Plans to replace Monifieth High and Grange Primary School with an all-through school are among a range of improvement options for the school cluster approved by Angus Council yesterday.

Councillors on the children & learning committee agreed to begin discussions on the following options:

  • A review of the secondary catchment areas  of Monifieth, Carnoustie, Forfar and Websters
  • Extend Monifieth High School, Mattocks Primary School and refurbish Grange and Liff Primary Schools
  • Replace Monifieth High and Grange Primary School with an all-through school
  • Replace Monifieth High and Grange Primary School with an all-through school with additional community leisure facilities
  • Refurbish and increase the capacity at Mattocks and Liff Primary Schools as well as an all-through school to accommodate Monifieth high and Grange Primary School
  • Develop Monifieth High School to include community leisure facilities

Convenor of children and learning, Councillor Mark Salmond, said “This will be the largest organised conversation with the Monifieth community to help us shape future education provision. I would ask all interested parties to fully engage with Angus Council to share with us their views and aspirations.”

The council will develop a timescale and programme for engagement in the coming weeks.
