Tring School win planning consent for £30m rebuild

The £30 million project will be one of the largest of its kind in the UK over the next three years.

Funded by by the Government's Priority Schools Building Programme work is due to start this Easter.

The new facilities will include science laboratories, design and technology facilities, art rooms, classrooms, new dining room, sixth form centre, a four court sports hall and an activity studio.

A local benefactor has also committed to fund expanded sports facilities to encourage more participation in physical activity and exercise. 

Tring School is part of the Ridgeway Learning Partnership. Sue Collings, CEO of RLP, commented:

"Tring School is currently graded as "Good" by Ofsted and with an "Outstanding" 6th Form, behaviour and personal development. With this fantastic new building and modern facilities the quality of our teaching and learning will go from strength to strength." 

The front of the new three story building will also be built 65 meters back from the road to help reduce the impact on the local community.

Chair of Governors Anthony Kent commented.

"In 2021 we will open a school that will be brilliant for the children, the staff and the whole community of Tring. The current buildings are in very poor condition and no longer fit for purpose. They are extremely expensive to run and despite our best efforts to be ecologically friendly the old buildings make this impossible. Our new school will be highly efficient in every respect including sustainability."

Tring School will also be launching The Big School Fit Out fundraising campaign to raise additional funds to ensure the facilities are furnished and fully equipped. 

It's set to be will be one of the most sustainably designed schools in the country with additional facilities to support the pastoral care and emotional well-being of the students.
