Funding sources for such developments • Central Govt re Warner and 6th Form Building as a Grant Maintained School (1990s) • Liverpool City Council as a Foundation School • DfE grants via Academy status • School budget
Further needs • New Science Laboratories • New Music Suite • A Sports Hall • Improved segregation between vehicles and pupils • Improved access to the school site for vehicles • New reception area with ability to control external public access to site • Completion of any refurbishment of Main building (eg new room heaters and some classroom doors) • Food Technology provision • New pupil toilets • The end of the mobiles!!!!
Capital Plan – Phase 1 (Spring 2014 - Autumn 2014) • New vehicle access via Woolton Hill Road leading onto a car park on what is currently Y7 yard
Capital Plan – Phase 1a (Autumn2014 - Summer2015) • Construction of new 3 storey Science Block at right angles to Main Building connecting near staircase next to Reception – using part of front yard • Continued refurbishment of Main Building over Summer Holidays • Y10/11 yard will transfer to existing car park and Y7 to front yard not being used for Science Block
Capital Plan – Phase 2 (Summer 2015-Autumn 2016) • Demolition of existing gym and Science Labs near Year 7 yard • Construction of Sports Hall with changing facilities, fitness suite and PE classroom between MUGA and rear of Hall. Provision of 3G facility on field near existing lower yard • Construction of new admin block (reception, meeting rooms) and Music Suite on site of former Science Labs • Construction of new link between the admin block and rest of school • Continued refurbishment including new pupil toilets, food technology room, Chaplaincy Room and Performing Arts room • Removal of mobiles at end of construction period
Points to note • This is a development for SFX on its own – school will continue as Catholic institution with boys provision (11-16) and mixed sixth form as now. School will continue as an Academy under trusteeship of De la Mennais Brothers. • It will not involve any amalgamation with another school and there will be no change to pupil intake arrangements. • Sixth form arrangements in terms of student access to courses at 6th forms in other schools will continue just as now.
What happens next? • Leadership Team and governors are working closely with the council, construction company and the design team. Staff and student involvement in design process • Planning arrangements being dealt with by LCC & Kier – public consultation meeting later in January organised by LCC & Kier • Logistical arrangements being planned so that pupil education is not disrupted (we are experienced in this given developments which have taken place in the past) • We will keep you informed of developments via website and newsletters
Finally • This represents a huge opportunity for the College and its pupils (present and future) • We are being able to maintain our identity, preserve the best of the “old school” and have brand new facilities where needed • We are extremely grateful to the Mayor and LCC for their hard work in putting the Liverpool Schools Investment Programme into place and are very appreciative of our inclusion within the programme
