Academy to extend in multi-million-pound project

A school belonging to the South Lincolnshire Academies Trust, called the Spalding Academy, is increasing its teaching areas as part of an extensive refurbishment project. Representing an investment worth millions of pounds, the secondary school will now be expanded to cope with the growing demand in the area of families wishing for their children to attend.

From public and commercial buildings requiring more space to homeowners planning house extensions in Chester, Lincolnshire and other parts of the UK, professional architects help businesses and members of the public alike with expert designs, advice and support.

The mammoth undertaking will see a refurbishment of the artificial pitch and multiple building projects onsite. The new facilities will allow the school to provide 150 more places for pupils and create 18 new jobs in the area. While alterations are planned to extend existing learning spaces, an all-new teaching block comprising eight classrooms will also be constructed.

Speaking to Spalding Today, Lucy Conley, the Executive Principal at the school, commented on the plans, which have been spurred on by the increased residential development in the area.

“Spalding Academy continues to be a thriving, successful and oversubscribed school. To meet local demand for school places, the Local Authority have proposed a permanent increase to our Published Admission Number to 300 places, from 270.”

Work will also include the conversion of four classrooms into two science labs and two ICT rooms, and the creation of music rooms with practice areas, PE changing rooms, two dining halls and a performance space for drama classes.
