- Holy Trinity Church of England Secondary School in Crawley is one of the latest 61 schools across England set to benefit from the Government’s £1 billion ten-year rebuilding programme.
- 161 schools have been announced so far, with 300 expected to be confirmed in 2022–23, delivering on the Government’s manifesto commitment to give every child access to a great school and a world-class education.
- Work to rebuild the schools will create jobs, apprenticeships, and training opportunities around the country to level up education and Build Back Better.
Henry Smith MP has welcomed the announcement that Holy Trinity Church of England Secondary School in Crawley has been selected as one of the latest 61 schools that will be rebuilt or substantially refurbished as part of the third round of the Government’s School Rebuilding Programme.
The programme will provide the funding to transform 500 schools across England, delivering on the Government’s commitment to level up opportunity around the country by giving every child access to the best classrooms, wherever they go to school.
The School Rebuilding Programme is backed by £1 billion of government funding; helping to rebuild and refurbish primary, secondary, and specialist schools, in addition to sixth form colleges around England.
“The quality of facilities in schools can have a significant impact on a student’s learning experience, and I’ve been working closely with the Government to secure investment in our schools to offer children the best opportunity to succeed.
“That is why I welcome the news that Holy Trinity will benefit from the £1 billion investment to rebuild and refurbish 61 schools across the country, including updating and modernising buildings, creating state of the art sports halls, music rooms, science labs and dining areas.
“This investment will improve the experience of students across the country – helping them to learn, develop, and achieve their full potential.”
This funding for schools will help to deliver state of the art learning environments for pupils. The majority of the projects are set to be completed in three to five years.
As well as delivering world-class learning environments for pupils, the School Rebuilding Programme will also create opportunities, jobs, and apprenticeships – from the construction industry to suppliers, businesses will be offering training as part of their involvement in the projects.
The Secretary of State for Education, James Cleverly, said;
“Our School Rebuilding Programme is already making a difference to the lives of pupils and their teachers. It is creating greener school sites that are fit for the future and that local communities can be proud of.
“We know how important it is to have high-quality school facilities. That is why we continue to invest billions in our rebuilding programme.”
