You may have noticed scaffolding has appeared around the Curie Building at Newcastle Academy. We are pleased to announce this commencement of works which will total over £280K repairing and replacing roofing and skylights on both teaching blocks, and will continue for around 25 weeks.
This is part of a successful bid by United Endeavour Trust for £640,000 from the Capital Investment Fund to be used across both Newcastle and Clayton Hall Academies.
At Newcastle Academy there will be a further £85K safeguarding project taking place during the summer term involving additional barriers and fencing, security systems and CCTV to all main teaching areas.
Similar work will take place at Clayton Hall Academy, with roofing replacement and sky lights to the value of £190K+ across the teaching blocks starting during the summer holidays, along with safeguarding around £90K+ to increase site security with access barriers, additional CCTV and other security measures.
Work will continue throughout the summer months and into the autumn, with expected completion dates early in 2018. We realise this may cause some disruption around the school sites, but ask visitors, staff and students to take care around the working areas whilst the scaffolding is in place and workmen are on site.
