Priority School Building Programme schools to open

As part of the governments Priority School Building Programme (PSBP), 22 schools are set to open this month with state-of-the-art, multi-million pound refurbished buildings.

Before the start of the 2015/2016 academic year, 27 schools had reopened under the first phase of PSBP, and this term a further 22 will reopen as a result of a £160 million investment. In a project worth £4.4 billion, 537 schools will be transformed over the two phases.

Schools Minister Lord Nash said: “The start of this new school year marks an important milestone in the progress of the Priority School Building Programme, with more schools than ever transformed from run-down buildings to state-of-the-art facilities.

“These schools will give young people across the country the modern learning environment they need to unlock their potential.”
