Seven multi-million school revamp phases completed

Have your say

SEVEN phases of major school rebuilding projects in Sheffield have been completed – in the same week.

The £18m King Edward VII School in Broomhill – which has been transformed into a ‘world class’ facility – was handed over by contractor VINCI Construction UK as part of the Building Schools for the Future programme.

Phases of multi-million pound improvements at Notre Dame Catholic High School in Ranmoor, Stocksbridge High School, Handsworth Grange Community College, The City School, Parkwood Academy and Birley Community College were also finished.

The contractor started its work with Sheffield Council, to completely rebuild and refurbish the majority of its secondary schools, in 2008.

Keith Shivers, regional cirector at VINCI Construction UK, said: “We have worked extremely closely with Sheffield Council and the schools to ensure the projects are executed to the highest standard.

“Now completed, we are confident that the schools will provide Sheffield with the next level of education.”
