Halsall, the Bath-based construction firm, has been appointed to build a sixth form centre at Norton Hill School in Midsomer Norton.
Work will start on the 800 sq m, £870,000 building this month and complete next May. The project will give the school improved sixth form accommodation and four additional classrooms and will link to its recently-completed 10-classroom block.
Once finished, the new sixth form block will mean all the school’s remaining temporary buildings can be demolished.
Halsall managing director Andy Corp said: “We are particularly pleased to working on this project at Norton Hill School as some of our staff attended the school and have children there.”
Headteacher Alun Williams added: “I am delighted that yet more investment in our learning environment has been possible. This state-of-the-art facility for the sixth form and a further four new teaching classrooms, will mean that there are no temporary buildings at
“It is a tremendously exciting time for the school on the back of excellent results this summer. The children here have been superb during the course of our last building project – a 10-classroom English block opened this September – so I have no doubt they will enjoy watching the building rise out of the ground but continue to get on with everyday school life.”
Halsall Construction, part of the Bath-based building, development and property group Shepperton, provides construction services in the residential, education, health and commercial sectors across the South West.
