Expansion Project Update

Week 6 - 12th November 2018

This week work will focus on the installation of drainage.  The whole are has been levelled and prepared for the new building. 

Week 5 - 5th November 2018

This week contractors will start work on installing the drainage for the new  building.  We increased the building site footprint to enable safe working.  The snack shack will be moved to another location on the school site and as a result will be closed for the next two weeks.  An additional till has been located in our main dining hall to help reduce waiting times.

 

Week 4 - 29th October 2018

Over the last couple of weeks contractors have been on site completing the groundworks ahead of the delivery of the main structure in January.  The pads have now all been installed.  

Our newly marked staff carpark has been completed and this will allow us to start work on the cycle storage area later in the year.

Week 3 - 22nd October 2018

This week work on the footpath continues.  Contractors have also been working on the revised staff carpark layout.   This work has been undertaken so that we are able to provide a new secure space for cycles on the school site. 

The foundation pads for the new building have started to be installed on the tennis courts.

This week our contractors have been working hard to get the temporary haul road installed from the rear of the school site.  Fencing has been installed to segregate the building site from the school.

During the summer holiday additional areas have been created for students to use at break and lunchtime.  This area will provide much needed hard standing play areas during the construction of the new building.
