Public exhibition on the future development of Hartshill School

A public exhibition on ambitious plans for the re-development of Hartshill School is taking place on Tuesday 2nd November in the main school hall between 3pm and 7pm.

Hartshill School is underpinned by an ethos of ‘Be Kind, Work Hard and Achieve’. The school is passionate about delivering a rigorous, rich curriculum that inspires students to be confident and ambitious.

Hartshill has been selected as one of the first 50 schools in England to receive funding under the Government’s School Rebuilding Programme (SRP). The SRP will undertake major rebuilding and refurbishment projects, with investment targeted at school and sixth form college buildings in the worst condition across England.

Hartshill’s existing buildings, whilst utilised successfully to date, provide various challenges in terms of movement and the safe and efficient delivery of the curriculum. The new proposals embrace and promote the school’s core values, whilst providing a much-needed modern school building and improvements to the surrounding campus.

The objective is to replace the existing secondary school, part of the Midland Academies Trust with a modern, efficient three-storey school building and surrounding campus that will provide a positive establishment, which can become the school of choice in the local area.

The new building is designed to inspire and to raise aspiration for all pupils and as such will be accessible to everyone. An improved set of community facilities, such as changing facilities and hall space, will be accessible to members of the public outside of school operating hours. The existing sports hall will also remain on campus.

A public exhibition event will be held on Tuesday November 2nd between 3pm and 7pm in the main school hall and members of the project and senior leadership teams will be available to answer questions about the proposals and construction timeline. Following the exhibition, a planning application will be submitted to North Warwickshire Borough council. The exhibition boards will continue to be available at the school, and information about the proposals will be made available on our website here
