We are...creating SEVEN new classrooms for September 2016
01 October 2015
As the summer building and refurbishment programme dies down the business and finance team within school are now starting to look at numerous projects that will be delivered over the next two financial years. The biggest of these by far is the project to create seven new state-of-the-art classrooms in the former Lindisfarne House. This will be developed to tender stage during the coming term as the works/funding will span the next two financial years. Working in conjunction with Liverpool Archdiocese Schools Department this will be a very beneficial investment in the school.
Work has already been completed in the last financial year on the external phase which was primarily concerned with replacing the old-style hotel windows. This provided larger windows with improved lighting and ventilation for the classroom learning environment.
The classrooms, which are due to open in September 2016, will be the new home of the humanities department.
Keep watching this space for developments.
St Cuthbert’s has been investing heavily in building development since 2010 with the following projects having been completed:
Windows in the Science/Maths/English/Modern Languages/Religious Education Block replaced
Refurbishment to Gym, Gym changing rooms and shower areas
Windows to the front elevation of the main block replaced improving the learning environment within the classrooms.
Re-siting and refurbishment of textiles classroom
