New school to be built in Notts
School plans submitted by Nottingham based CPMG Architects have been approved to build a new secondary school and sixth form centre for The Suthers School in Fernwood, Newark on Trent.
Newark and Sherwood District Council has approved designs for the Nova Education Trust’s three-storey school, to be built on Fernwood Business Park.
At full capacity, the new building is set to hold 600 secondary students and 230 sixth form pupils. The 7220 square metre building covers three floors and has a traditional departmental structure focused around clustered hall spaces and centralised staff workrooms. There are sports facilities for community use, staff pastoral offices, a distinct Student Support Suite and a combined library and sixth form.
The new development is due to start on site on 18 June 2018 and is set to be completed by 29 July 2019.
