Brentry Primary School Refurbishment
25 June 2018
This month, we are delighted to receive confirmation of funding from the ESFA (Education Skills Funding Agency) for the complete recladding, refurbishment and redecoration of Brentry Primary School, a unique and popular school in north Bristol.
The existing 210 place primary school for pupils aged 4-11 was built in the 1960’s. Despite substantial refurbishments and extensions over time, the ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted-rated school falls well below current building standards. The project designed and developed with Bristol-based contractors Bray & Slaughter will address as many of these as possible within the confines of the existing building to bring the school up to date and an outmoded building to life.
The project will transform comfort levels within the school with new heating and ventilation systems and a highly insulated roof and windows with reflective glass to address solar gain.
Senior Architect, Adrian Abbs said: ‘The works will improve accessibility and fire safety, and new fittings and finishes will revitalise the interior to extensively improve the quality of the teaching and learning environment for both pupils and staff.’
Work will start on site this summer, commencing with the delivery of a temporary school located on the school playing fields before the end of term.
The refurbished building will be fully operational for the 2019-20 academic school year.
