UNIQUE SPECIAL SCHOOL WELCOMES BUILDING WORKS
The sod cutting ceremony to mark the start of the improvements took place on Thursday, 1st November at the School.
Following alteration works over the summer to the existing building by building contractor Speller Metcalfe, the school has already been enjoying the use of new hygiene rooms, life skills facilities and new toilet areas.
However, it is the new extension to the school which starts on site this October that will have a vast impact on the school, which was never originally designed to cater for pupils with physical disabilities.
Five new permanent classrooms, a new hall, sensory rooms and other much needed facilities will provide support for the children that the school is catering for.
“We are delighted that this much needed extension is finally underway,” said Sian Bailey, Headteacher at Blackmarston School. “We are all very excited and look forward to working with Speller Metcalfe who we know will completely transform the learning environment for all our children.”
Steve Speller, Joint Managing Director at Speller Metcalfe, said: “This project isn’t just about improving what the School has already got. It’s about providing specialist facilities for the most vulnerable children in Herefordshire. The extension will provide the learning space and facilities these children so desperately need.
“We will continue to do everything we can to help, not only with the building works but by helping raise funds for the overall project.”
