Kenilworth School Relocation Update May 2021

Posted on: 12/05/2021

I am delighted to inform you of the progress of our new development that is currently underway. 

 

The Kenilworth Multi Academy Trust (KMAT) has confirmed that the new 2,200 pupil Kenilworth School & Sixth Form at Southcrest Farm, Glasshouse Lane in Kenilworth will be built by the Morgan Sindall Group.

 

This is a landmark achievement which represents one of the most significant investments in the education sector in England this year realising our ambition to bring together Kenilworth School & Sixth Form onto one site.

 

We took ownership of the new site in December 2020 and, since then, Morgan Sindall have undertaken pre-construction works to prepare the site for our new school.  Now with the main contract confirmed, they will push ahead with the main building works from May 2021 for completion in June 2023.  The new school will open to new and existing pupils in September 2023.

 

Kenilworth School & Sixth Form has been planning this project since 2014.  Staff and students have been involved along the journey in a series of consultations since the project’s inception.  The school will also be launching a major fundraising project to provide enhanced facilities at the site to benefit the students and community in Kenilworth.  If you would like to get involved in this, please contact Alison Pointon at Kenilworth School (a.pointon@ksn.org.uk).

 

It is an exciting time ahead for the future of young people and the community of Kenilworth.  This represents years of hard work and successful partnership working and we would like to thank all of the external partners who have worked with us, especially Warwick District Council who have especially supported us to achieve our vision.  The new school will provide modern educational facilities to accommodate the changing needs of the school community over the coming decades.  Younger students in our local feeder schools can look forward to enhanced opportunities in the new build. 

 

Our website will be updated with news, information and photos as the build progresses.

 

Yours sincerely,

Hayden Abbott
