We have recently been awarded the access package for the construction of Kent Council’s £30m Cornwallis Academy.
The project is due to commence in September this year and is being built by Carillion as part of the £118m batch of five academies that were procured under the Partnership for Schools national contractors’ framework.
Upon completion the Academy will specialise in technology and science and will accommodate 1,765 pupils.
The Academy will be part of the New Line Learning Trust Federation, which aims to eliminate traditional corridors in schools and academies. Therefore the classrooms and facilities will be arranged around a large, central space and will also include a number of large volume teaching blocks to accommodate up to 130 pupils.
The project is expected to reach completion by July 2011.
