£4.4 million expansion for Kingswood Academy

Work is about to begin on a £4.4 million expansion of Kingswood Academy following an increase in demand for places.

The expansion is one of several schemes taking place across the city, benefiting from a part of £50million being spent to ensure children have the best education facilities possible.

Councillor Shane McMurray, Portfolio Holder for children’s services said: “I’m delighted this scheme is now underway, and it follows several other school expansion schemes across Hull, to increase capacity, choice and provide quality provision for pupils in the city.

“We want to provide the best education possible in the best learning environments possible, and this is why we are investing around £50million in the city’s schools.”

The secondary school in Bransholme was initially built to accommodate 1,350 students aged 11 to 16, but as the local population has grown, a three storey extension will be built on land to the rear of the existing school, creating a further 150 places for students.

The standalone building will include 12 new classrooms, two offices, a new dining area and servery including indoor and outdoor seating, toilets and plant rooms.

A further 72 parking spaces will also be created for cars, electric vehicles, motorcycles and bicycles.

The project is being delivered by Hull Esteem Consortium LEP Ltd as part of Hull City Council’s Pupil Place Planning project, with Sewell Construction carrying out the work.

Completion of the extension is expected in early spring 2022, and the school will remain fully operational throughout the project.
