Executive Principal’s Blog – 15 April 2016
As we start yet another busy term at BMS we look forward with anticipation to our wonderful school moving to an even more successful future with further improvements to teaching and learning, achievement at all levels and continued major developments with our learning environment.
Our original school building project scheduled for the next two years will enhance many of our existing buildings with state of the art extensions and learning resource spaces. These will benefit nearly all faculties and year groups across the school. Originally planned as a £3.5 million project we have now, through recent negotiations with the local authority, secured an additional £½ million worth of investment.
In addition we are delighted to announce that our recent major application to the DfE’s Condition Improvement Fund for 2016.17 has resulted in a successful bid worth over £1.5 million. This hugely significant bid will be used to re-clad all our buildings across the school site – transforming the look of Bushey Meads School and ensuring that all the teaching blocks around the whole site are fit for purpose for the 21st century.
Only a third of the bids submitted were successful, so a huge congratulations goes to Richard Chambers, our hard working and experienced Site Manager, who masterminded and managed the bidding process. His work will undoubtedly transform our learning community and take it to the next level!
On that very positive note I wish you all a very successful summer term. Finally don’t forget to click on the link to read about the rest of this week’s BMS News……..
