Haydon Bridge High School to receive makeover – the future is bright!
Posted on by Bright Tribe
Haydon Bridge High School is to benefit from a fresh new look this summer when work begins on ‘the big makeover’ thanks to grant funding from the Department for Education secured by Bright Tribe Trust, who are planning to take over the school later this year. “Our objective is to create a great school environment for students, maximising the ‘biggest bang for your bucks’ and we can begin this transformation with this grant,” said Simon Evans, Bright Tribe Operations Director.
Like many schools built in the 1960s, Haydon Bridge is showing signs of historic under investment. The fund will be used primarily for cosmetic improvement to the premises. Heavily trafficked areas including the school hall, reception and corridors will all receive a fresh lick of paint, new ceiling tiles and replacement flooring.
“This funding is hugely significant,” said Simon Evans. “All too often school premises are an area of historic under investment and a grant of this nature will allow work to be done which will have an immediate impact on the school environment, which in turn will promote greater aspiration in the school. This initial face lift will be the catalyst for a rolling capital improvement programme funded by the annual capital allocated to Bright Tribe Trust by the Education Funding Agency. Our plan is to create a fresh inviting environment that is highly conducive to learning – one that signals a bright new future with Bright Tribe.”
