Mr Drake added; “Kirkby & Diamonds management and careful programming of works minimised the disruption to the school throughout the duration of the project. The personalised service we received from the K&D Team ensured the building works were completed on time and within budget. The qualities of the new Drama Studio and IT Suite and the service we have had from K&D have exceeded our expectation, and we hope to work with them again on future schemes”.

Works included internal and external insulating of the building, replacement of the dated electrical installation and upgrading of lighting, heating and introduction of IT services.
The internal layout of the building had minor reconfiguration to provide a soundproofed drama studio with sprung dance floor and mirrored wall, and a small IT suite to be used for the editing of media productions.
