The design and build project, which is on behalf of Essex County Council, involves the construction of a classroom block extension, internal remodelling of the main school building and an extension to the existing main hall.

The works will extend the school to create a further 105 places, increasing the school’s capacity from 315 to 420 over seven years at an additional 15 pupils per year.


Our General Contracts Division are handling the project working alongside Pick Everard and Barker Associates, completion is scheduled for September 2016.
