Artist impressions of new-look Wednedfield schools

Work will begin soon on the next stage of the multi-million-pound transformation of several secondary schools in Wednesfield after the Government approved plans for the latest phase of work.

City Councillors last month approved the Final Business Case for Phase One of the £270million Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme, which will see a £59.8m investment to build an academy and refurbish three schools in the city.

Phase One of the programme includes the refurbishment of Coppice Performing Arts School (costing around £17.5m), Wednesfield High School (£14.6m) and the Braybrook Centre (£1.5m), all of which should be completed by February 2013.

Councillor Phil Page, Wolverhampton City Council‘s Cabinet Member for Schools, said: “I am delighted that final contracts have now been signed and we are now able to progress with the exciting developments for the Phase One schools which make up the latest stage of our Building Schools for the Future programme.”

Plans for Wednesfield High School include a new Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths block showcasing the school’s Engineering specialism, as well as outdoor classrooms, a four court sports hall and a lecture theatre. There will also be out-of-hours access to fitness suites, drama studios and dining areas.

Coppice Performing Arts School will get an iconic, state-of-the-art theatre and performance space to showcase the talents of its pupils to parents and the wider community, as well as a new sports hall with a dedicated community entrance and a courtyard which will improve access to different parts of the school.

The Braybrook Centre will have a brand new sports hall and additional green space, also available for community use, which will mean pupils no longer have to go to elsewhere to enjoy sport.

Hopefully WV11.co.uk goes some way to fixing this!
