Planning Application - information for our community
Backwell School is currently seeking planning permission for a new sports hall building with classrooms and the demolition of some modular (hut) classrooms on our school site.
This is following a successful PSPB2 grant application, and additional funding from the Lighthouse Schools Partnership. If planning permission is granted the work on the new building will begin in June 2020 with some preparation activities beginning slightly before that.
The new building would comprise a sports hall and five classrooms. It will also contain a fitness suite (gym), a staff office and science prep room. The proposed location of the new building can be seen on the following plan (the areas in purple are the old modular classrooms which will be removed):
We are very excited about this addition to our school and the improved facilities which will benefit both our students and the local community.
