Summer Works

26 Sep 2019

Over £600,000 has been invested into our Academies over the summer. Below are some of the fantastic projects that have been completed.

 

Beacon House

As our community of Academies grows so too do the teams supporting the Academies. The Trust has invested in creating a space for the Support Centre team members in the East at Beacon Academy. The investment saw a refurbishment of the old Caretaker’s House to create offices and meeting spaces.

 

Beacon Academy

Beacon Academy has had an upgrade to windows through several areas of the Academy. The new double-glazed windows provide a much-needed update to the buildings, providing both protection from the elements, especially in those cold winters and creating a great visual impact on the building.

 

Bramley Park Academy

Bramley Park Academy has lacked investment and had a poor layout. Under the leadership of Carrie Green some major refurbishments have taken place this summer. The existing entrance to the Academy has been moved and the space reconfigured to create a new library, new offices, a meeting room and a new staff area. The school has been redecorated throughout by the onsite estates staff and it’s looking bright and fresh. The Academy has benefitted from new windows and doors throughout and finally the Academy has invested in some brilliant new outdoor play equipment.

 

Forest Academy

The Forest Academy has seen a full replacement of heating pipework throughout the school. The team completed the replacement of hundreds of metres of pipework throughout the school which had its challenges. This investment will see the good operation of heating throughout the school for a further 30 years.

 

Park House boiler

Park House Academy’s boilers failed at the end of last year. The team were quick to react in installing a new boiler system over the 6 weeks holidays. The new system should ensure heating for the Academy for another 25 years.

 

Oakwood Leeds

To ensure that we are working in the most efficient way the pupils at Oakwood Leeds were relocated this summer across the Springwell Leeds existing schools. Investment from the Trust has seen new Primary School pods created at all 3 three Springwell Leeds sites and the return of the Oakwood site to Leeds City Council.

A huge thanks goes to all the Estates Team that work so hard over the summer holidays getting projects done and ready for the new term
