A Bramley school is set to undergo £125,000 worth of building work this summer in a bid to accommodate extra pupils in reception from September.
As previously reported, Hollybush Primary School is meeting demand for places by expanding from a two-form entry with 420 pupils, to a three-form entry with 630 pupils.
Initial building work over the summer will be carried out to:
- Remodel a year one classroom into a reception class
- Create seperate playground for reception and nursery pupils
- Change library/ICT suite into a classroom with toilet and cloakroom
This summer’s work is ahead of the main extension work at the school, which is budgeted at around £4 million and was approved by the council’s decision-making executive board in November 2014. The council says exact details of the main expansion work is still being worked out ahead of an anticipated completion date of September 2017.
