Midhurst Rother College, Midhurst - Extension of Changing Rooms - Allocation of Capital Funding for Project Delivery

Midhurst Rother College is an Academy Secondary School providing education for pupils aged 11 to 18 in the Midhurst/Petworth and surrounding areas.


Following an increase in parental preference and a need for Secondary places in the area, the Published Admission Number (PAN) for each year group at the school will be increased to 240.  Consequently the changing rooms need expanding to accommodate the increased number of pupils. 


In March 2021 the Director of Property and Assets approved the capital funding to enable the detailed design for the additional changing rooms to be progressed through the County Council’s Multi-Disciplinary Consultant (MDC), Faithful+Gould Ltd.


The Cabinet Member for Learning and Skills will be asked to approve:

            the allocation of the funds required for full delivery of the project

            the procurement of a building contractor to construct the extension to the changing rooms and the

            delegation of authority to the Director of Property and Assets to award the contract.
