Working in partnership with Collinson Construction and NVB Architects we are delighted to confirm that work has now completed on the £2.14m multi-sports facility at St John’s Marlborough secondary school in Wiltshire.
The scheme has been delivered in just eight months and transformed a previously unused area of rough ground at the front of the school and includes a four-court sports hall, two external multi use courts and landscaped areas for student recreation.
St Johns Principal, Ian Tucker, said: “A key vision for this project has been about creating first impressions; for our visitors, and for those who learn or work at St John’s and Excalibur. It has been about making everyone feel they are in a place that gives them the very best life chances academically, but also recognises that sport, fitness and wellbeing are equally important.
“The levels of support and the collective community effort put into this project have enabled us to achieve that vision, and it is now our responsibility to ensure that this first impression remains a reality, particularly for the young people we are here to serve”.
The new facilities will be fully opened to students after the June half-term break and will add a significant new dimension to the school’s PE and sports provision, as well as providing additional sheltered recreational areas for students.
Martin Cook, logistics director at St John’s, added: “As well as outstanding academic success, St John’s now stands as a school with truly outstanding facilities. Students and local sport clubs now have all-year access to a games and PE facility that truly enhances the provision of the activity based curriculum. I have been proud to be associated with such an exciting project.”
