Back in the summer, we were delighted to complete on a very special development for Lancaster School, which is a member of the multi-academy SEN Trust Southend.
The Trust is made up of a strong group of schools which aim to meet the needs of pupils who require greater support in a special education school.
The team here at A.W. Hardy created a new building at the school’s site in Prittlewell Chase, Southend-on-Sea containing three new state-of-the-art classrooms designed to support a further 40 students from the local community.
The project ran for just under seven months; works began in January, and the classrooms officially opened in the middle of July.
Headteacher Tom Jackson-Owens shared his thoughts with the Southend Echo earlier in the year.
