Tomlinson starts £6.5m works for Coventry School

G F Tomlinson is working for expansion and renovation of the existing building of Barr’s High school in Coventry. Additionally, a new teaching block is under plan for year seven pupils, as the contractor will start working for the same.

655 places for children aged between 11 and 16 are available at the school currently, along with sixth form students. Approximately 900 places under the expansion will ensure that the school can provide in a total span of five years.

G F Tomlinson is delivering the £6.5 million scheme on behalf of Coventry City Council. This includes the construction of a new two-storey, seven classroom teaching block known as ‘The Bridge’ for January 2022.

There will also be a dedicated space for year seven pupils, designed to help 11 and 12 year-olds benefit from a smooth transition into secondary education. The project is expected to complete in September 2021.

The works run along the school’s science department extension and refurbishment. Also, new classroom spaces will be created in existing blocks with improved facilities added to the sports changing/multi-gym and external play spaces.
