Plans for new school on display

Posted: 16/06/2008 22:21:00

Parents, children and residents in Leominster are invited to comment on architect’s plans to build a new modern school building to replace the Minister College in Leominster.

Contractors are currently preparing detailed designs for further approval, but initial feasibility plans for the new building have been drawn up and placed in the school foyer for people to look at. The draft plan shows three-storey and two-storey teaching blocks, together with a new vehicular access and car park off South Street.

A planning application has been submitted to install five portable buildings on the college site which will provide ten classrooms and allow demolition work to begin in the summer holidays. It is hoped to start building work in the autumn term with an anticipated completion date of December 2010.

The new school will cost in excess of £20 million and will provide accommodation for 900 pupils, which includes a sixth form for 120 pupils.
A replacement youth centre will also be created in the old craft design technology workshops.

There will be a formal consultation meeting arranged later in the year, but the college is keen for parents and children to have a preview of the plans now.

Minister College principal, Richard North, said: “We are very excited about the plans and want to share them with as many people as we can. There is still time to incorporate people’s views into the plans before building work begins. Many professionals will be involved in developing the detailed plans, liaising with staff and council officers to make sure the final design of the building will enable us to provide the best possible education for our pupils.

“It is very important that pupils, their parents and the local community also have their say on the design of this new facility which is why we are inviting visitors to come and look at the draft plans prior to formal consultation.”
