Procured through the Southern Construction Framework, our team of education specialists are constructing a new two-storey SEN School in Bridgwater creating 160 school places, bringing pupils from two existing sites under one roof.
Somerset County Council is seeking to expand and replace the existing Elmwood and Penrose schools by creating a new bespoke site, which will be the new Polden Bower SEN School and will be built near the town's community hospital, at the northern end of a site which has been allocated for major development in the coming years.
The new all-age school will include classrooms, a dining hall, sports hall, sensory and therapy rooms, staff rooms, warm water pool, space for administration and medical staff, meeting rooms, sensory garden, multi-use games area and adventure playground.
Carol Bond, project manager for the Somerset Council corporate property group said:
“The new school will enable families to engage much more closely with the school and develop a sense of community.”
The school is due to be open for students in September 2020.
