Patchway Community College awarded multi-million pound investment

Patchway Community College has been awarded in excess of 4 million pounds to refurbish its site. The money will be used to fund roof and heating system replacements and building refurbishments. This includes funding from central government and also local developers to provide a floodlit AstroTurf facility and a variety of other improvements. The money is ring-fenced for use at Patchway only and must meet strict criteria over its use, for example facilities and building work only and not salaries or school trips.

Headteacher Karen Cornick commented “This is a long overdue investment in Patchway Community College and its community and is very welcome. It demonstrates confidence that our school has a bright future. This financial investment in our facilities, alongside our formal partnership with The Olympus Academy Trust from September 2017 will accelerate our journey of rapid school improvement; a journey that is already well underway. “
