Stepnell to create £2m education and sports facilities for Oxfordshire primary school

A £2 million scheme to build new learning and sports facilities for Hill View Primary School in Oxfordshire is underway. 

Work on the new two-storey building is being carried out on behalf of Oxfordshire County Council’s Property and Facilities Partnership. 

The new facilities will house eight classrooms, a new school hall, group rooms and other accommodation.

The project will also involve the creation of a multi-use games area and additional parking and the removal of two temporary classrooms. The new building’s roof will house eco-friendly, electricity-generating solar photovoltaic panels.

Carillion operations director, Josh Lavis, says: “This project will ensure there are sufficient pupil places to cope with the rising demand from families in the local area, whilst also reducing the pressure on neighbouring schools. The new facilities will provide a modern learning environment with more room for activities that can be enjoyed by current and future pupils of Hill View Primary School.”

The expansion is being funded by Oxfordshire County Council to help address the need for more pupil places in the local area. 

The construction programme is set to finish in summer 2016.
