Progress so far

Progress so far has been extremely productive, and work on site has been moving at a very fast pace - all in preparation for the school returning after their summer break.

The temporary classrooms (Phase 1) have now been handed back to the school ready for the new term to begin.

Phase 2 works to the West carpark has been slowed down at times, as we have allowed the access road around the carpark to remain open to assist the school to manage traffic more safely and efficiently. The through road was not supposed to be accessible until Tuesday 21 September, but the site team made the decision to keep it open, managing traffic during in peak times to assist the school to minimise disruption. However, this has impacted on working hours each day, meaning 30 working hours have been lost since the school has returned. Despite this, we will still meet our handover date of Tuesday 21 September.
