Morgan Sindall will deliver the first phase of works at the school which will include the construction of nine classrooms, a nursery school area and an SEN resource room. The firm will also deliver a main reception admin area, school hall facility and kitchen area.

The school will comprise a steel frame structure and its brickwork skin will be partially clad in bright orange. Morgan Sindall will also deliver external landscaping as part of the project including; a new sports pitch, a multi-use games area, a soft play area, a habitat area and a covered outdoor learning area. 

The project for Kent County Council will eventually see the school transformed from a one-form to a two-form entry facility accommodating 450 pupils once the second phase of the project is complete.

The new school is being built at the Finberry housing development site at Cheeseman’s Green and is the seventh school within The Stour Academy Trust, a primary sector-only Trust.

Julien Jones, area director at Morgan Sindall, said: “Finberry Primary School will be unique in design and provide a modern learning space for pupils and teachers to enjoy. Morgan Sindall is well versed in delivering innovative and exciting learning environments and we look forward to handing over the new school in time for the start of the academic school year in 2017.”
