I am pleased to inform that funding was approved for the project referred to by the deputy under the Additional School Accommodation (ASA) Scheme 2020. This project will provide accommodation for 8 General Classrooms, 4 SET rooms, 1 Music room, 1 Textiles room, 1 Art Room, 1 Project store, 1 Multimedia room, 2 Science labs including 1 Prep area, 1 Library and 1 GP/Dining Room.

The project has been devolved for delivery to the Association of Community and Comprehensive Schools (ACCS).  A Consultant has been appointed to this project who will lead the project through the various stages of architectural planning and onwards through the statutory planning process, tender and construction.

In addition to the above, in order to meet the school's interim accommodation needs, the purchase of four general classrooms under the Department's Modular Framework was approved; this accommodation has already been provided on-site.
