Second round of Prime Minister's school rebuilding programme launchedPosted: 19th July 2021
Burnt Mill Academy has been selected as part of the second round of the Prime Minister’s school rebuilding programme.
50 schools will be able to build new and improved facilities as part of the government programme.
Education Secretary, Gavin Williamson said:
“The environment children are taught in makes such an enormous difference to their education.
This programme will give thousands more young people the chance to learn in world class school facilities, levelling up opportunity and making sure every young person has the chance to succeed, progress and fulfil their potential.
As we build back better after the pandemic, with buildings that are net-zero in operation, this major ten-year rebuilding programme will help to shape the education of not only children now, but for years to come.”
Ms Helena Mills CBE, CEO of BMAT EDUCATION, said:
“We are delighted that Burnt Mill Academy has been chosen as one of the next 50 schools to be rebuilt through the DfE’s Schools Rebuilding Programme. This is fantastic news for our pupils, staff and the wider community in Harlow.
This much-needed investment, in an area of high deprivation, will enable all of our children to learn in modern purpose-built school designed for 21st century learning.”
Headteacher at Burnt Mill Academy, Laura McGlashan, said:
“We’re delighted that Burnt Mill Academy has been chosen for the new School Rebuilding Programme. This is fantastic news for our pupils, the staff and the local community.
To have a modern, purpose-built building which will support their learning in the 21st century is fantastic.”
