Work Begins on Gateway Extension

We are pleased to confirm that Ken Biggs Ltd has been appointed as the building contractor for the Gateway extension and work will begin on site on Monday 12 October. The project will consist of a two-storey extension to the Gateway building and will provide an extended social/study area on the ground floor with a new catering facility provided by Sodexo. The first floor extension will be the new home for The Well, a pastoral centre/common room for our sixth formers. This in turn will free up the classroom space in the main building currently being used for The Well. The project is due to be completed by 26 February 2016 and will provide our sixth formers with a pastoral, social and academic facility second to none.

Parking during Building Works

Please note that during the building works parking will not be possible in the designated bays in the southern end of Combe Hay Lane due to the access requirements of the site. Please do not park on Sulis Manor Road to wait for your children since there may well be heavy lorries having to turn into the lane. Please also note that the bike shed outside the Gateway building will be out of action during the construction period. The site itself will be self-contained and will not impact on the normal running of the sixth form apart from periods of noise depending on the phase of construction.
