Local secondary schools get scoop of £60m funding to rebuild and develop

Leamington Editorial 8th Mar, 2021   0

THREE Warwickshire secondary schools will receive some £60million in funding to rebuild and develop their sites.

Kineton High, Southam College and Hartshill School have received the funding from government’s school rebuilding programme.

The work will be funded and project-managed by the Department of Education and is expected to begin with the next year and be completed within the next five years.

Warwickshire County Council hopes the programme will help create jobs, apprenticeships and training opportunities, with suppliers offering training and apprenticeships as part of their work on the rebuilds.




The rebuilds will sit alongside other major school projects including the forthcoming All Through School at Oakley Grove in Warwick and the new Houlton School in Rugby.

Council education spokesman Coun Hayfield said: “We are delighted to secure the success of Kineton High, Southam College and Hartshill School with the government’s scheme.


“Warwickshire secured funding for three schools out of 50 which is a tremendous success rate.

“This is no coincidence. Our approach was enabling and removed any blocks to progress. Not only will this help us to meet the increasing need for secondary school placements, it will do so with high quality facilities that are fit for purpose for this generation of students.”
