Millions To Be Spent On School Upgrades

Millions To Be Spent On School Upgrades

12:14pm 9th March 2010

Six Buckinghamshire secondary schools are getting an 80 million pound makeover, paid for by the government.

The County successfully bid for a share of almost £420m under the governments Building Schools for the Future programme (BSF).

Schools which will initially benefit from the funding are:

  • Chesham Park Community School
  • Burnham Upper
  • Mandeville School (Aylesbury)
  • The Grange (Aylesbury)
  • Buckingham Upper School
  • Furze Down (SEN) Winslow.


Furze Down School will undergo a complete rebuild, while major refurbishments will take place at the remaining five.

Marion Clayton, Buckinghamshire's Cabinet Member for Achievement and Learning, said: "This is just the morale boost we needed. We have fought long and hard to secure funding to improve those schools most in need of work, and at last we can look forward to providing pupils and staff with learning environments they fully deserve.

"We went through a rigorous process and, because we were ahead of the game and ready to go with the projects we were bidding for, our bid succeeded. We cannot wait to get started."
