The £4.5 million expansion allows the school to take on an additional 150 pupils, and is one of a number of the borough’s secondary schools redeveloping buildings to meet the rising demand for school places. 

During the project, Robertson was also contracted to improve the fabric of the building, including work on the roof, structural issues and upgrading the electrics, bringing economies of scale and savings to the Council. 

The refurbishment and alterations modernise the building and create a vibrant new environment to accommodate effective teaching and learning.

Working with the Clear Sustainable Futures partnership

Robertson delivered this project within Bolton Council’s partnership with Clear Sustainable Futures. This focuses on developing long-term solutions to sustainability challenges, including sustainable housing, the circular economy and a range of sustainable strategies focussed upon community support and improving social resilience.

Bolton Council is an early adopter of the Clear Sustainable Futures partnership, and through this, benefits from strategic advice, investment and funding packages, reduced time and cost to develop projects, improved regionally focused supply chain competition and better outcomes for the local community.
