In January 2021, the decision was made to close the old school owing to rising damp and mould that was beginning to form within the school building. The EYFS and KS1 classrooms remained unaffected and so a temporary solution was found for KS2 in the British Community Centre; Villa V which is situated adjacent to the main school. Thus splitting the lower and upper school across 2 sites. Work has been slowly progressing in the background to find a more suitable solution to the issue.
Following the Town Hall meeting today (Tues 16th January), a presentation was given by the DIO lead, Lt Col Robin Hall and Head of Defence Children Services (DCS) Bev Martin. The presentation which was delivered detailing how the modular build will look and projected timelines can be found below.
This page will be updated regularly with photographs, timeline of events etc to keep all interested parties abreast of the progress. If you have any questions regarding this information, please direct them to the Vice Chairman of the SGC, Cdr Brian Lockhart ([email protected]) who, as the liaison between the School and the Project Lead, will be able to find out the answers to your questions.
