Haileybury Turnford have announced the exciting news that construction has begun on a new building that will include 12 classrooms, a large library and a sixth form seminar room.
The energy efficient building will also include three state of the art science laboratories, a science prep room and office space. The building will provide an enhanced learning environment from Autumn 2021
The development is a further sign of the transformation of Haileybury Turnford, which has been sponsored by Haileybury, since 2015. The school has seen continued improvements in exam results and higher standards in all areas of school life over that period.
The building is funded by the Department for Education under the Priority Schools Building Project, with design and construction undertaken by Morgan Sindall. The school has been involved throughout the design phase of the project and there will also be opportunities for Design & Technology students to work with the construction team and learn about how their subject relates to the world of work.
“We are very excited about the new building; it is a reflection of the improvement that has gone on throughout Haileybury Turnford over the last four years. It is a significant milestone in the strategic development and improvement of the Haileybury Turnford site. Staff and students occupy the building in autumn 2021 and these new facilities will provide students with first class learning opportunities,” said Mr Robin Newman, Principal.
Haileybury Turnford also secured funding from the Department of Education Condition Improvement Fund this year to undertake a project to upgrade water provision across the site.
Russell Matcham, Chair of Governors, added: “Haileybury Turnford has seen real improvements in exam results and improved standards in the past three years. This new building clearly shows Haileybury Academy Trust’s commitment to enhancing facilities for its students and in providing young people with the best possible education.”
