Alsager School extensions officially opened

School extension dec 2019 low resAlsager School officially opened their various school expansion building projects, which were completed during the last academic year and finished over the summer.

The school was asked to increase in size and admit an additional 150 pupils in total (30 per year group) by Cheshire East Local Authority as part of their responsibility to ensure enough school places were available to meet local demand. The figures and size of expansion were based on the number of approved housing developments in the local area.

To meet this increased need for places the school has built; two new science labs, six new classrooms, significantly extended the canteen and built a new teaching block, containing five new classrooms, additional toilets and a 6th form study area.

A range of invited dignitaries were given a tour of the new facilities as part of the official opening, with special guests being Mrs Jacky Forster – Director of Children’s Service at Cheshire East Council and Mark Bayley – Head of Service at Cheshire East.

Executive Headteacher, Richard Middlebrook said “I would like to thank Cheshire East Council and Mark Bayley in particular, for providing us with the funding needed to expand our school and meet the increased demand for places. It is vitally important for a school to serve its local community and this expansion is ensuring that Alsager is doing just that. We have been able to increase our capacity through a variety of different building projects and we are delighted with the results. We are especially proud of our new canteen and new teaching block which includes our 6th Form College, both of which are quite stunning and have improved our site enormously.”
