Lessons ready to take place in Alderbrook School's new teaching block

Solihull Editorial 10th Dec, 2023   0

A NEW teaching block at Alderbrook School has been completed ready for lessons to begin next September.

The two-storey block with seven classrooms, ancillary spaces, toilets, a reception area, school bus parking, cycling storage and increased car parking for staff and visitors.

The works were carried out by Midlands-contractor, G F Tomlinson on behalf of Solihull Council.

During the project, the contractor sourced 92 per cent of labour from 40 miles of site offered work experience placements on-site for Alderbrook pupils, and supported the school’s ‘Life Ready’ day, which included ‘career in construction’ workshops and mock interview sessions.

Tom Beveridge, headteacher, Alderbrook School, said: “The completion of the building ready for September has been transformational for our school; students are enjoying learning in state-of-the-art classrooms and the creation of outdoor play space has markedly improved the experience for our students.

“We are delighted with the enhancements this project has brought to our school and are very grateful to all involved in this project.”




The contractor also supported the local Marston Green Parish Hall by donating materials for a much-needed refurbishment of its welfare facilities.

Chris Flint, managing director at G F Tomlinson, said: “I want to say a huge congratulations to our hardworking team for not only delivering a high-quality teaching space, but also for exceeding our social value-added target by such a significant amount. This is testament to our dedication to this project and passion for giving back to the communities in which we operate.”
