Change of status for St Andrew's CE High School, Worthing - Award of Contract for Delivery of Phase One Works

St Andrew’s CE High School in Worthing is currently a single-sex boys’ school. In October 2020, following a public consultation, the proposal to alter St Andrew’s High School, Worthing to a co-educational school from September 2021 entry was confirmed (Decision Reference ES08(20/21)).

Capital investment will be required to enable the necessary building adjustments to take place so that girls can attend the school.

 

As part of a separate key decision process the Cabinet Member for Education and Skills will be asked to approve the allocation of capital funding to enable the first phase of the project to enable the school to accommodate girls to proceed.  The Cabinet Member will also be asked to delegate authority to the Director of Property and Assets to award the contract for the first phase of the works.

 

Subject to this delegation of authority from the Cabinet Member, the Director of Property and Assets will then be asked to approve the award of contract for the first phase of the works at St Andrew’s CE High School.
