Re-Development of Thomas Becket School

An extensive £11.8m re-development of the existing school premises whilst keeping the school in full occupation.

The project demanded seamless integration between the designers, contractor and the school.

The result was a totally transformed secondary school delivered 3 months ahead of schedule.

Work included a new english teaching block, library, music suites, dining hall and a two storey pavilion for design technology, IT, graphics and food technology. The sports hall was doubled in size and the school grounds were extensively landscaped with new roads and substantial car parking and dedicated bus bays.
