Scola Project Update

Preparations are underway with regards to the SCOLA Project. 

The next four weeks are crucial in ensuring that all contracts, licences, temporary buildings, temporary car parks, room movements, and commissioning works for the temporary classrooms are all completed on time ready for the commencement date of Monday 19th March.

We respectfully remind parents that the school is not an open access site outside of school hours and children may not use school grounds unless part of an organised activity led by an approved adult. This is especially important while the grounds contain building works.

Please see below the timeline of events over the next four weeks.
