Evesham Editorial 4th Mar, 2018   0

STATE of the art science labs and new teaching spaces will be part of an £800,000 refurbishment of Blackminster Middle School which will begin this summer.

As well as the two new labs in the main block, the old science building will be remodelled to create a state of the art resistant materials teaching space, a food technology area, a graphics area and an upgraded art and textiles area.

The school’s playground will be resurfaced and new security gates will also be installed with the bulk of the work taking place over the summer holidays.

Work will extend into the autumn term but school chiefs have vowed to minimise any disruption to learning.

Headtacher Lorna Button, said: “We are delighted the school is getting a much-needed refurbishment and Worcestershire County Council is backing middle schools in this way.

“We’re excited to have some state of the art facilities and looking forward to welcoming new students in September who will have the benefit of the new specialist teaching areas.”

Coun Marcus Hart, cabinet member for Education and Skills said: “One of Worcestershire County Council’s priorities is to improve outcomes for children and young people.

“Ensuring our schools provide high quality facilities is an important aspect of this and we’re really looking forward to supporting Blackminster Middle School undergo this refurbishment.”
