It hardly seems possible that after the excitement of the portable prefabricated parts of the building arriving last month on the backs of low loaders and craned into place, our new school is finally starting to take shape. The spring weather has been kind and the contractor has managed to recover some of the delays they were forecasting last month. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the construction will continue at the current pace so that we can look at moving in somewhere near the original completion date. Fingers crossed!





Bricklayers have now started on the brickwork making the building look more like a school than a  porta cabin. All the trench and drainage work has now been completed. The steelwork forming the  school hall is now completed and is actually slightly ahead of schedule. Roofers have been laying  the waterproof membrane system and electricians have now started on the internal works. This  has allowed some of the finishing trades to commence work like laying latex on the floors to  receive the floor finishes and internal partitions being made ready for plastering.



 As you can imagine that there are plenty of meetings happening to ensure that the occupation of the new   building goes smoothly and plans are in place to manage services like IT and broadband. All staff have been   carrying out a major housekeeping exercise to ensure that anything not fit for purpose is disposed of so that   we do not clutter up our brand new building. We have always had the luxury of plenty of storage space and   this will not be available in the new school.





Anyone wishing to see plans of the new school please visit the reception area where plans and elevations are on permanent view.
