The school and the local area have an increased demand for quality sports facilities. In response to this we would like to install a multi sports surface for our students and the community to use. This would provide a much needed space for a range of sports activities and would cater for the increasing requirement for our facilities from community groups. We will refurbish the existing tennis courts to create the new facility, which will offer our students year round sports opportunities. More sports will also be available to our pupils with the use of the multi purpose pitch.
This project will benefit the 1600 students on roll. Our students will benefit from this project during the school day but also spread the word within the local community that there is a great facility here. Many students and members of their families take part in local community groups too and would be using the MUGA as part of their hobbies / interests outside of school.
This project, when delivered, will also create a longer term income stream for our school. We have staffing in place for evenings, weekends and for school holiday clubs and could therefore accommodate an increase in our usage with no additional salary expenditure or extension to our operating hours. We will charge reasonable rates for sustained community involvement and all the profits that are generated will be invested back into our school community.
