About the project
Construction of a new three-storey school building following partial demolition of the existing craft block. Refurbishment and re-organisation of existing buildings to bring them in line with the new building. An additional car park for 46 vehicles including cycle racks and alterations to the school access to create a new main entrance. A new all-weather pitch which will be available for community use as well as use for the school. A ‘daily mile’ exercise route to the perimeter of the school field.
The additional facilities are for both 11-16 pupils and post-16 pupils, to increase capacity of 11-16 places from 1,200 to 1,500, and increase post-16 places from 230 to 300 places, with effect from the 2022/23 academic year.
