Issue details

Award of contract for adaptations to Arun House in Horsham, to provide a Satellite site for Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee School, Horsham.

In March 2023 the then Cabinet Member for Learning and Skills approved the budget required to enable the phased establishment of a satellite site to Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee school (QE2), at Arun House, to provide additional pupil places  (decision LS11 (22/23) refers). The County Council’s Multi-Disciplinary Consultant (MDC) have been appointed to undertake the full design. The new accommodation will provide up to an additional 60 places increasing the current schools capacity for 15-19yr olds, from the current 120 to 180 planned places.


Decision OKD33(23/24) approved a procurement process for a building contractor to complete the necessary works to Arun House.  This process was unsuccessful and the procurement abandoned.  There is a requirement for a new approval to instigate a new tender process for a building contractor, due to changes being made to the contractual requirements.


Following the outcome of the new procurement process the Assistant Director (Property and Assets) will be asked to approve the award of contract for delivery of the satellite site for QE2 school.
