We are excited to share the news about our school refurbishment. The Shaw-Education Trust have invested over half a million pounds, in phase one of this project. We are undergoing a complete face lift to the classrooms in the main teaching block, changing rooms, pupil toilets, reception and foyer area. This is to enhance the teaching and learning environment for pupils, staff and our local community.
The facilities and learning environment in the technology area is to also be refurbished. This will begin in Autumn 2020, as part of phase 2 of the project.
Watch this space! We will keep you updated throughout the forthcoming weeks.
