Two companies have reached the next stage in the competition to become LB Hammersmith & Fulham’s partner for the £207 million Building Schools for the Future programme.
Bouygues Partnership and Skanska Barratt H&F Partnership were shortlisted this week. Both consortia are now be working on detailed proposals with the boroughs two sample schools, Sacred Heart High and Bridge Academy.
Andy Rennison, the councils Building Schools for the Future programme manager, said: “The BSF programme provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform future generations learning, qualifications, jobs, and success in life. It will help more local pupils get into their school of choice by expanding popular schools. It will also add sixth forms in all secondary schools currently without one.
Its about so much more than the buildings. Its about changing how we use space and harnessing the best that new technology offers in the classroom. It is also about putting schools at the heart of the local neighbourhood they serve. It will allow all our secondary and special schools to build on their existing strengths and raise aspirations and achievement across the borough.
