I am pleased to inform the Deputy that funding was approved under the Additional Accommodation Scheme 2019 to enable the school in question to build six general classrooms, a three-classroom SEN base, one SET room, one Science Lab with prep area and 1 Tech Graphic/DCG room.

I can confirm that this project recently received my Department's approval to go to planning, and the Department now awaits a post planning (developed design) report from the school for review.

At this early stage, it is not possible to predict when a significant school building project of this nature will go to construction, nor when it will be completed, as progress depends upon many contingent factors that can arise.
