Staff and students will have noted that extensive work on the roof and window replacement scheme has now begun. These works are due for completion18 weeks from now. There will be unavoidable disruption as the project develops. Certain classes will be re-scheduled into alternative rooms on a daily basis but all affected will be informed. We anticipate that a window replacement for one classroom can take place in a day. This means that only one classroom should need re-timetabling on any one day. There will also be increased noise level around the school as materials are brought onto the site and secured in position. We will do our best to minimise this. All building areas are cordoned off and all fenced areas are out of bounds. I have observed how well students are dealing with this already. When completed the improvements will lead to a safer, warmer and weather resistant school so the relative inconvenience is worth putting up with!
