SCHOOLS within the BMAT family have been given a spruce-up over the summer months.
The work – totalling more than £700,000 – has seen tired and outdated facilities refurbished or replaced to ensure they are fit for today’s learning.
Work completed includes –
Lucia Glynn, director of operations and programmes, said: “We carry out this kind of work every summer.
“The work we have completed has seen tired and life-expired classrooms and facilities refurbished, so they are up-to-date for 21st century learning and today’s curriculums.
“Our schools look better and our students are getting a better experience with improved facilities which are safer and more fit for purpose.
“Some of our school buildings have been standing for quite some time – Royal Docks, for example, was built in 1999 – so they need modernising to cater for the way children learn now.
“At BMAT, we believe every child should be given the same experience, which is why we continue to improve our schools as and when necessary.
