Building Our Future - Development

In order for the building project to be completed, and for the school to function effectively during the construction period, a phased project will be implemented. This will mean that the process will be divided into three phases, with each phase being completed before the next is started. This will ensure that only specific areas of the school are under construction at any one time and that the school, when combined with some temporary classrooms, will have ample teaching space. The Phased Development also means that, when each phase is completed, brand new facilities will come into use during the school year 2014-15.

 Temporary Classrooms

As part of the strategic plan for the phased development the school will invest in some high quality, temporary classrooms to house classrooms during the year of construction. The classrooms with will be erected on the school playground during the summer holidays and be fully prepared prior to the start of the academic year.

The Primary Section and History and Geography classes will be accommodated in temporary classrooms from 1st September 2014. The Primary section will remain in these classrooms throughout the construction process to ensure that our youngest students enjoy a stable learning environment and a year without relocation.

The temporary classroom block will have office, toilet and storage facilities in addition to the classroom areas. Internet connection and air conditioning in each classroom will also be provided.
