A LAST call has been issued to people with an interest in the redevelopment of Madras College to make sure their views are heard.

Friday, February 10, at 5pm is the deadline for responses to the public consultation on the remodelling and extension of the Kilrymont building.

Further information relating to the project has been released on and the school’s website.

Councillor Douglas Chapman, chair of Fife Council’s education and children’s services committee, said: “I’d like to thank all those who have already taken the time to respond to this consultation and ask all those who haven’t yet done so to make their views known.

“There are a number of documents on line to view which provide additional information on these proposals and which will answer most questions.

“I’d urge anyone with an interest to make sure they are aware of all the facts so they can make an informed comment on the proposals.

“Councillor Chapman went on: “There is no perfect solution for a single-site Madras in St Andrews, but I am confident that a remodelled and extended Kilrymont will deliver an excellent school for the present and future pupils of Madras College.

“The results of the consultation will be brought back to committee at a later date where they will be fully considered before any decision is made.”
