New Build Updates

And so it begins

Friday 20th October saw the first step in the move towards our wonderful new building when engineers and contractors from Wates arrived on site to start pegging out the site of the new build. Over the coming months, staff and students will no doubt grow accustomed to the sight of high visibility vests and hard hats, as the new main building takes shape. Some year seven students were able to meet a couple of the contractors to find out a little more of what we might expect over the coming months.


We are one of only 277 schools in the country that have been successful in being selected for the government’s two billion pound Priority Schools Building Programme 2 and we are delighted to be able to announce that we are looking forward to a complete rebuild of our main block.  Work will commence in the autumn term this year and we expect to move into our new building in January 2019.  The layout of our site means that there will be no disruption to our students’ learning during the project.  We will continue to use the existing building during construction, which will only be demolished after we have moved into the new build.  With a new school hall, dining room, dedicated performing arts suite, two floors of classrooms and other facilities, the new building promises to be impressive. Please look at the accompanying video.
