School Expansion

The latest news about the plans for our forthcoming school expansion

Our latest meetings with the Project Manager and Contractors have been to agree a program of works for the forthcoming extension.  The building will begin over the summer holiday 2016, and next Easter will see the alterations to the school kitchen begin.  For this reason our school meals will be brought in from offsite for the summer term. It is forecast that our new building will be handed over to us towards the end of May 2017; at this point the current Year 5 and 6 classrooms will be vacated by those pupils to allow the reconfiguration of this area to become the new F2 classrooms.  The Year 5 and 6 children will therefore become the first occupants of their new classrooms in the new building, followed by Place 2 Be.  The alterations to the current building can then go ahead in the office and community room areas.  We plan to start the new academic year 2016-17 using a brand new additional gated entrance on the Norton Street field side of school.  As always we have stated to the Project Manager that the safety and security of our school and everyone here at Mellers must be paramount.
