Developers Morris Property have begun work on a £2.1 million, five-year project to expand Adcote School. The projects incorporates new classrooms, science laboratories, catering facilities, a sport hall and two new boarding houses. The company recently completed a refurbishment of the school’s Aston Hall, a new 50-bed boarding house and new science centre.

Morris is now commencing the build for new en-suite accommodation for up to 80 girls and two matrons; as well as facilities for sixth-form students and teachers.

Headmaster Gary Wright said: “With our continuing growth in numbers and strong reputation, these are undoubtedly exciting times for Adcote School. We are constantly seeking ways in which we can improve the school and build one that is fit for the future. Everyone who is involved with the Adcote community is both excited and inspired to see the development taking shape and seeing these facilities brought to life by Morris Property.”

Ian Galliers, chief executive at Morris Property added: “We are absolutely thrilled to be continuing this development at Adcote School. We are pleased with the results so far and next stage of the project will build on the strong and longstanding partnership we have with the school.”
