December 2018

As the contractors are now preparing the ground for our new school, it is hard to remember that it was back in 2013 and that we were asked by the Department of Education (DfE) to submit a proposal for funds to either refurbish our existing school or hope beyond hope that they might build us a brand new school.

It turned out that the cost of repairing the school was going to be far too expensive and the DfE was recommending paying for a new building under a scheme called the Priority School Building Programme 2 (PSBP2).  Early in 2016 a Document of Understanding was signed and discussions started on exactly what was needed for our children in a brand new building.

Over the following two years planning permission was sought and a contractor was appointed to design and build our new school using a modular type of construction. The school will be built in parts in a factory in Bridlington to a very high standard and then delivered to site and assembled in double quick time.

This month we have seen the site huts arrive, hoardings erected and main drains being installed. Our Facilities Manager has been working with the site team to minimise disruption, allowing the school to run normally. Security cameras have been installed to help protect the site and we are planning to keep a record of the new building being constructed.

It is hoped that the school will be ready for occupation early in our 2019/2020 academic year. Anyone wishing to see plans of the new school please visit the reception area where plans and elevations are on permanent view.
