A North-east academy is over capacity less than two years after it opened.
Mearns Community Campus, a state-of-the-art facility costing £23 million, was officially opened in 2014.
But new figures show that the school is already over capacity.
It can accommodate 640 pupils and currently has 647.
This number is expected to increase to 669 by 2021.
A report by Aberdeenshire Council’s education, learning and leisure committee also reveals that four of the seven primary schools in the academy’s catchment area will be operating over or close to capacity within five years.
Auchenblae will be 42% over capacity in five years, with 136 pupils. It currently has 111 pupils for a capacity of 96.
Marykirk School will see a steady increase in pupils taking the school roll up from 42 to 67 – 42% over capacity.
Laurencekirk Primary School will also rise from 300 pupils to 317 for a capacity of 306.
Redmyre will operate close to capacity with 70 pupils in a roll of 71.
The report states a number of projects are in the pipeline to address issues.
Luthermuir, Fettercairn and St Cyrus are the only schools that are not over capacity and are not expected to go over it.
A report will go in front of Kincardine and Mearns area committee tomorrow for comment.
