Facilities Update

Update on Timing from Project Director of the Government’s Education and Skills Funding Agency 

“The main construction contract has now been signed. This is a significant milestone, paving the way for completion of the new build extension and the whole build project for The Kingston Academy. Completion of the build is phased, with three floors of teaching accommodation, including specialist facilities such as science labs, and external areas including multi use games areas due for occupation in September. Completion of the whole building, to provide further specialist and sports facilities is scheduled for January 2019. The latest update from the contractor is that they are on target to achieve these dates. However, as with any construction project there is potential for delay, for example due to extreme weather like that seen last month. In order to ensure sufficient accommodation is available as the school continues to grow we are also working on plans to expand the temporary accommodation, a planning application will be submitted for this in the coming months –at this stage this is just this is a fall back plan in case a delay is experienced.”
