Award of contract for installation of Modular Teaching Block at Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Special School, Horsham

Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee School (QEII School) in Horsham caters for a wide range of Special Educational Needs, for children aged between 2 and 19 with severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple learning difficulties or complex needs. 


Over recent years additional pupils have been accommodated by the school but without the supporting investment in accommodation. Pupil numbers have increased from 85 in 2017 to 105 in 2019.


In July 2020 the Cabinet Member for Education and Skills approved the allocation of capital funding from the Basic Need Capital Programme to expand the school and delegated authority to the Director of Property and Assets to award the contract for the works (Decision reference ES02 (20/21)).  The building project will provide a three class modular teaching block with associated group room, hygiene provision, storage and external works.


The Director of Property and Assets will be asked to approve the award of contract for the expansion works at QEII school.
