What happens next?

Unfortunately in March 2020 the planning permission process stalled and the proposed start date of summer 2020 was put on hold. Processes picked up again in autumn 2020 and it is hoped that the tendering process for construction of Phase1 will continue towards the end of 2020 with construction beginning early in 2021. This does depend on some final approvals and we’ve been told that in addition to this delay, construction time may now take longer than originally planned as well because it will have to incorporate COVID-related working practices. Approval of a capital budget that puts funds in place for future work on the main school site under Phase 2 is under review.
