Lytham St Annes High School - Wates

Lytham St Annes High School

Project overview

The redevelopment of part of Lytham St Annes High School is one of the first to be built as part of the DfE’s 10-year Schools Rebuilding Programme (SRP).

Work will be undertaken in four stages and will create a new school building that will be two-storeys high and will ensure continuity of provision for the school and for community users during the build process, without the need for any temporary teaching accommodation.  Both the new school building and the new sports hall will be located alongside the remaining existing buildings in a landscaped campus setting.

All new build elements will be net-zero carbon in operation, achieved through a combination of enhanced building fabric, passive ventilation chimneys, mechanical heat recovery systems and on-site offsetting of energy use through an extensive biosolar roof system.

Procured via the Department for Education’s (DfE’s) Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) Framework, they are part of a batch of six schools that Wates Construction was awarded in January 2020.

"Tens of thousands of pupils are set to benefit from new, modern, energy-efficient school buildings as 100 schools are confirmed for the first two waves of the Prime Minister’s ten-year School Rebuilding Programme, to level up opportunities for all. The initial rebuilds and refurbishments will create modern education environments, providing new facilities from classrooms and science labs to sports halls and dining rooms”.
