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

The Special Education Needs Team within Education and Skills has identified a need to provide additional accommodation at Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Special School (QE2) in Horsham to provide for the 105 pupils currently on roll. 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 £1.4m to fund the provision of a three-class modular teaching block with ancillary accommodation to ensure the school can offer suitable facilities for the 105 pupils currently on roll (decision ES02(20/21) refers). Approval is now sought to award the contract for carrying out the works.
