The Bourne Education Trust has been set up to enable the construction of Chertsey high School which will be a six-form entry Secondary School. Age range 11-16. 900 pupils at maximum capacity.
The new school will be constructed on the former Runnymede Centre site. The development will be a new build sports hall and teaching block with parking and landscape areas and its campus will be located just off Chertsey High Road.
Currently the school is partially occupied by pupils and teachers. Works have started by carefully demolishing the remainder of the existing building not in occupation and site clearance. Once the new block replacement has been constructed and the school have moved to the new block, the existing building will be demolished.
As soon as the landscape and parking facilities have been completed, the site will be handed back over to the school where approximately 900 of pupils will benefit from these first-class facilities.
Throughout the duration of the project, Kier has engaged with the local community.
These have included Career Presentations to young students in the neighbouring schools, Site tours for children, an interactive Social media signage displayed on site advertising the Kier Shaping your World Campaign, monthly newsletters published on the school’s website, an opportunity for the local school children to paint our hoarding.
After being introduced to key members of the team, given an induction on Safety and a project overview, they will be accompanied by a Site Manager on a tour of the site. Once back in the Project Office– a brief overview of the various jobs available and routes to entry within the build environment will be given followed by a 15-minute Q and A session.
We look forward to welcoming you to Chertsey High School Site.
We are passionate about showcasing all that the built environment has to offer, and we look forward to showing you around this specific project.
Our team will be happy to assist with any questions you may have; from site specific to how to start a career within our profession.
