20th Dec 2019 – As a school, we are committed to providing our students and staff safe, comfortable environments to teach, learn, play and grow. Over the last three years we have undertaken extensive work in phases to enhance our buildings condition.
Last year we embarked on a windows and doors refurbishment project for some of our main school buildings.
Our senior management team worked along with consultants Barker Associates to submit a Condition Improvement Fund bid to the Education and Skills Funding Agency. The Condition Improvement Fund is funding set aside for schools to help with finance needed for condition refurbishment works. Our application was successful with a grant of £320,000 sanctioned for the refurbishment works.
Our old windows on the Music Art Science building have been replaced with modern double glazed windows and doors to increase natural light and improve thermal insulation. These external works have had huge internal advantages with dry, brighter and warmer spaces for our students.
Plans for further works are in the pipeline, and we hope to develop these in due course.
