Creating 1,244 new school places in Bedford
Our team of education specialists are creating a new 840 place state-of-the-art free school in Rickmansworth.
The £17 million project will provide a permanent home for the school, which is currently based at Wolsey Business Park, with increased space and the facilities for it to grow and thrive.
The new location will also mean that the school is located at the centre of its catchment area, which covers Mill End, Rickmansworth and Maple Cross.
The project is being funded by The Education and Skills Funding Agency having been procured through the EFA framework and will provide much needed school places along with a new sports hall and outdoor sports pitches.
The plans for the project include a major investment in local highways infrastructure, including on-site parking spaces, new walking routes and safe crossing points, as well as a large drop-off area within the site that will help to prevent congestion on local roads.
Chris Tredget, managing director of Willmott Dixon in the Northern Home Counties:
“We are delighted to be creating another cutting-edge school in our region, generating much needed school places and a first class learning environment for students.”
