Construction work is underway on a new build £8.2 million primary school including one of Hull’s first purpose-built bases for young children with autism.
Contracts have been exchanged to enable Broadacre Primary School in Wawne Road to have a brand new expanded school constructed next to its current building, which will later be demolished.
The build will create a 630-place school, increasing capacity by 210 pupil places and incorporating a 10 place purpose-built resource space for children with Autistic Spectrum Condition, a 52-place nursery, enhanced external spaces and teaching areas, and a fenced multi-use games area. The new school is needed to meet growing pupil numbers following the build and expansion of the nearby Kingswood and Wawne View housing developments.
The current school will remain fully operational throughout the build and the construction site will be segregated to ensure maximum safety and minimal disruption to the school day.
Sewell Construction is now on site, having worked closely with Hull City Council’s major projects team, the school and Humber Education Trust to develop a design and build contract.
