In addition, there will be:

  • A full size sports hall and two new PE storage areas
  • A brand-new multi-use games area (MUGA)
  • A brand-new staff room
  • A brand-new school office
  • A new, fully-furnished waiting area for parents, carers and visitors to the school
  • A brand-new conference/meeting room
  • 4 additional therapy rooms
  • New boys’ and girls’ PE changing rooms
  • Five additional offices 
  • Two new disabled toilets

This is a really exciting time for The Abbey as we watch the transformation of our school allowing us to expand and flourish in our new buildings with their first-class technology. Below are images of some of the plans together with a few photos taken throughout the project. There is a regular blog in the news area of the website which follows the progress of the works with updates and lots more pictures.

As part of Project 22 we have completely refurbished our IT network and systems across the school. More than £200,000 has been spent on achieving this. All classrooms are now equipped with state-of-the-art interactive whiteboards, wi-fi and an internet-based phone system. Every student has also been provided with their own Chromebook fully funded by the school to aid their learning which came at no cost to our parents. These are regularly used in lessons.
