Creating new school places in Milton Keynes
- Part of long-term programme to provide school places in Milton Keynes
- Built adjacent to new secondary school
- Supports Milton Keynes growth
Our team of education specialists built a new two-form primary school providing spaces for 330 pupils along with a 26 place nursery in Kents Hill, Milton Keynes.
The school was built along with a 650 place secondary school in Kents Hill (below) forming a new £26 million campus for students and a central point for the local community.
Procured through the Scape Major Works Framework, the £6 million project created new modern facilities including extensive soft landscaping together with playing fields, trim trails, training areas, a hard ball court, tarmac/rubber crumb play areas, cycle shelters and canopies.
Peter Owen, managing director for Willmott Dixon in the Midlands:
“Kents Hill Park Schools provided much needed school places in Milton Keynes and new modern facilities for pupils. This project followed on from previous schools we have created for Milton Keynes and we are delighted to continue our work leaving a positive legacy in for the local communities and economy.”
The 52 week project is due to complete at the end of August 2017 and follows on from the completion of Whitehouse Primary School in 2016, Newton Leys Primary School and Nursery and Fairfield Primary School, helping Milton Keynes Council achieve 10,000 new school places.
