3D image of new Northampton school's temporary buildings revealed ahead of July completition date
An artist's impression of the temporary buildings of the school being built on the police headquarters site in Northampton has been revealed.
The 3D visualisation has been published on the website of Wootton Park School Trust.
Earlier this year, outgoing Police and Crime Commissioner Adam Simmonds gave approval to the sale of the site and the creation of a new school.
A spokesman for the trust the temporary buildings would be complete by mid-July.
“The temporary site will offer a first-class learning environment and excellent specialist learning facilities including a science laboratory, PE facilities, dining facilities, IT suite, library and extensive playing fields.
“Its location on the edge of the current playing fields at Wootton Hall Park will allow the construction team to zone off the building area and create a clear buffer between the temporary site and the construction site.
“This will ensure that the temporary site is not impacted by any building works. Northamptonshire Police will continue to operate on their part of the site until their relocation is complete,” he said.
“We are currently working with contractors on both the temporary and permanent building projects and expect work to start on the temporary school in the coming months, ready for completion by mid-July – in plenty of time to welcome our first learners on September 5.
“The trust is working closely with the Department for Education to finalise the Funding Agreement which we anticipate to be issued in the coming weeks,” the spokesman added.
