A new ‘post-16’ teaching block at Pudsey Grammar School has moved a step closer to reality after council chiefs appointed consultants to oversee the project.

Manchester-based AHR Building Consultancy Limited will be paid £413,999 to deliver consultancy services and associated technical surveys and fees for the development, which is still awaiting the submission of a formal planning application.

The proposed new ‘post-16’ centre at Pudsey Grammar School will create 134 additional learning places within the community, reflecting the school’s projected demand for post-16 places in future years.

It will meet the specialist curriculum and social needs of the post-16 cohort, with eight dedicated sixth form classrooms being provided in the new block along with breakout spaces, additional staff office provision and a dedicated sixth form learning resource space.

In May 2023 the Department for Education (DfE) awarded a grant of £4m for the design and build of a ‘post-16’ block at Pudsey Grammar School (PGS). The estimated construction costs for the block are £3.3m.
