We have started work on our latest education project – an £8.44m contract to amalgamate school facilities in North Shrewsbury.

The carbon neutral scheme at Harlescott Junior School in Featherbed Lane is expected to take around 12 months to complete on February 1.

The development will allow Sundorne Infant School and Nursery to move from its existing home at Corndon Crescent and relocate to the junior school site, allowing the Haughmond Federation to consolidate its infant and junior provision on a single site.

The build is being delivered on behalf of Shropshire Council. It includes a nursery setting, two nursery classrooms, four reception classrooms, eight classrooms for Key Stage 1, four classrooms for Key Stage 2, a pupil support hub, hall, kitchen, offices and meeting rooms.
