B&E Boys are pleased to announce that work has commenced on a major project at Rossall School in Fleetwood, Lancashire.
Rossall School was established in 1844 and is set on an impressive and historic 160 acre campus. Rossall School has an enviable reputation as one of the UK’s leading independent schools. It is a co-educational boarding and day school, educating boys and girls aged 2-18.
The site has extensive landscaped gardens, sports fields and pitches, and school buildings. The work consists of the construction of a new steel-framed sports hall and associated external works.
The new Sports Centre will include an indoor sports hall, the size of 6 badminton courts. The hall will also have provision for indoor hockey, cricket and basketball. In addition, there will be a four-lane 50 metre sprint track.
The plans for the Sports Centre also include a fitness suite and new changing facilities for the indoor sports area, the multi-use games area and astroturf. There will also be a viewing gallery over the existing astroturf pitch.
The project is set to last 43 weeks with the completion scheduled for the start of the 2019/2020 academic year. The school is rightfully excited about the project. It confirms a real commitment from Rossall in relation to its continued responsibility to provide outstanding modern facilities for the pupils of the school and the wider community. Indeed, the new sports centre isn’t the only major works that the school is undertaking – a new Performing Arts Centre is set to open in September 2018.
B&E Boys have a proud record of working on major projects in the education sector, such as this latest one at Rossall School. As ever, with the bulk of work set to take place during term-time, careful planning will be in place to minimise disruption to the daily running of the school, and to ensure the safety of pupils and staff.
