Plans for the new £22m Brecon High School will be on show at the school next week during an informal drop-in evening.
Next Wednesday, (July 19) between 4pm and 8pm, parents and other members of the public will have the chance to view the progress made with the plans for the new 11-18 school as well as opportunities to talk representatives of contractors BAM, the school and county council staff. The event will be held in the Main Hall at Brecon High School.
The project will see the existing secondary school replaced with new school buildings, fit to meet the demands of education in the 21st century
BAM has extensive experience in the design and construction of a range of public buildings in Wales and across the United Kingdom, bringing together the demands of function with aesthetic appeal.
The Outline Business Case for the construction of the new 11-18 school in Brecon, to replace the current School buildings was approved last autumn as part of the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools and Education Programme.
Rob Broadbridge, Headteacher at Brecon High School, said: “All parties have been working hard to progress the plans so that they meet the current and future needs of the school as well as maximise the funding available for the project.”
Cllr. Myfanwy Alexander, Cabinet Member for Schools, said: “These are exciting times for the school community of Brecon and we are looking forward to the provision of top quality educational facilities here.”
Mr Broadbridge added that the current plans have been shared with staff and pupils. Staff, parents and other stakeholders have already had the opportunity to contribute to the development of the designs. More stories
