Acorn Education Trust Site Team has been extremely busy over the last few months working on a variety of projects in schools across the trust. Successful CIF (Condition Improvement Fund) bids provided funding for the following:
Kingdown School – CIF funding = £777,187.00
The elderly mobile classrooms at Kingdown School have finally been replaced with a wonderful new building housing four maths classrooms. The building was handed over to the school on 21/9 and will be open to the students in the next couple of weeks. For Sara Edwards, CEO, it is the realisation of a long held ambition to replace the mobiles.
Roofing has also been upgraded in several areas of the school.
