A multi-million pound new specialist school has been handed over as the final site in a major rebuilding scheme.

Bradfield School’s £22 million building is eco-friendly and designed to blend into rural surroundings.

It is the final school in Sheffield to be transformed as part of the Building Schools for the Future project.

Contractor Vinci Construction UK, which handed over the three-storey school and attached biomass centre, faced the challenge of building on a steep sloping site with a 14-metre drop from end to end.

Craig McLackland, senior project manager, said: “The new building design and bio-mass system complements the rural surrounding.

“Every effort was made to blend the eco-friendly building into the Peak Park hills.”

The new school on Kirk Edge Road, Worrall, replaces an original building from 1957 which had been outgrown.
