Issues to address

Increased pupil numbers had put pressure on our existing music and PE facilities. They were not able to cope with the additional influx of pupils. Additionally we also required more classroom space to account for the increase in our pupil numbers. We got in touch with S2e to help us secure funding and project manage these builds. The challenge that we had was that we had a very specific location in mind for the new music space that required expert support.

Working together

The music extension had to fit within an existing courtyard space that adjoined 3 different buildings, all with different floor levels. Additionally, the funding S2e secured was used to create new changing rooms and a fitness suite for the PE department. S2e were also able to deliver a new 4 classroom block the following year to help cater for our increased pupil numbers.

The Outcome 

The finished music extension is wonderful and has allowed more of our students to be able to use these facilities and pursue arts based courses. Our additional classroom block has enabled us to welcome more pupils to the school. All works were completed in good time and had minimal impact on the day to day running of our school. Overall, we are extremely pleased with everything that S2e has been able to deliver.
