“The school is now a fantastic place to be and has been absolutely transformed by the work S2e have carried out.”

Issues to address

Before we met S2e there were significant issues with the condition of the school. We were suffering from ageing roofing as well as dilapidated toilets.

As we continued to work with S2e, the school expanded and had further requirements to enable greater pupil capacity. We engaged S2e to help us secure funding, negotiate with contractors and project manage the various builds.

Projects completed

Through successful funding applications, S2e have helped us to replace all flat roofs and refurbish the run-down toilet block.

Expansion funding allowed us to install a six classroom block as well as build a dining room extension.
Additional funding has financed a new sports hall as well as re-fit our ageing kitchen; replacing non-gas compliant appliances as well as floors and ceilings that were in poor condition.

The Outcome

The new roof is a vital element in the safe running of a successful school which gives us 25 years of roof security, providing the opportunity to focus on other areas.

Having to use the drama facilities to house the tables and chairs for lunch (set up and cleared away every day) is now a thing of the past, transforming our lunch service.

The sports hall provides a first class facility for all students and helps us promote the ‘Active Nation’ initiative.

“S2e have become an integral part of our decision making process in ensuring we utilise the full value of our estate.”
