School Rebuilding Programme

We are excited and honoured to be part of the School Rebuilding Programme (SRP 1092)

Update – March 2023

Works to restore our beautiful 1931 Portico are complete and the scaffold will come down in the next few weeks.  Restoring this important heritage structure has been time consuming and at times complicated, but as a school we should be very proud of having invested in the next ninty years of this beautiful ediface, which for many, is the defining image of our wonderful school.

In May 2023 we will lose the top field!  This may sound like a bad thing, however the reason is that behind the hoarding which will appear will grow, over the next 15 months, our brand new, state-of-the art and pioneering net-zero carbon in-use building; which will be home to English, art, food, technology, computing and SEND  in September 2024.

We will also be getting yet more fantastic sports facilities – for certain: a new outdoor basketball court, an arboriculturally improved rugby and athletics field,  and two outdoor cricket nets – hopefully (via a separate but concurrent project): also tennis courts, a hockey-5 pitch, netball courts and a 5/7-a-side football pitch too.

We will also be getting an outdoor amphitheatre classroom and two new covered outdoor eating areas which we will fill with picnic tables, all complete by the Spring of 2025.

A helpful presentation for parents, carers and local residents is at this link, used for the planning consultation.  A few minor tweaks have been made since, but it still gives a great idea of the exciting times ahead.
