New outside seating area.
Work has now started on our brand new outdoor seating area and over the coming weeks the canopy will be added.
This has been designed and installed following the student vote on our Politics Day last year. All students learnt about the British electoral system and different political parties. Staff delivered sessions on groups that lobby government to change laws and the day culminated in a school wide vote. Our outdoor seating area won the school vote and we have been working in conjunction with the council, builders, planners, and designers ever since.
As part of the planning process the school had to complete a mining survey, as the area beneath the school has several old coal mines. After successful completion of the design and planning process, work will be completed in time for students to take shelter from the summer sun.
