Important News Regarding School Closure – Summer 2017
You may be aware that Falinge Park High School has been approached by the Local Authority to take in additional pupils from September 2017. Over the next five years our intake will increase by 30 pupils in each year. The school is currently not built for 1350 pupils and requires additional classrooms and changes to the infrastructure. The Local Authority has provided funds for this and the school is contributing to the building programme. This means:
• An extension to the MFL building comprising of classrooms and a specialist Key Stage 4 Art Room.
• Changes to the Science laboratories in school to split the ‘super lab’ and convert another classroom into a lab. This will increase the number of labs in school from 4 to 6 and mean that pupils no longer have to have classes in the ‘hub space’.
• An extension to the kitchen in the dining room which will add a further serving hatch to reduce queues. There will be an additional serving point via a newly created dining room.
To manage these changes the school will close to pupils on Wednesday 19th July 2017 at 1:00pm and re-open on Monday 11th September 2017. This is an additional 5 non-pupil days to allow for the building work to be completed. I apologise for any inconvenience whilst this takes place.
