College chosen for rebuilding programme

Peter Symonds College, Winchester, has announced its selection as the only college in Hampshire to be among just 239 schools and colleges in the country for the Department of Education’s School Rebuilding Programme.

As part of the Government’s investment to level up education, the Schools Rebuilding Programme carries out major rebuilding and refurbishment projects at schools and sixth form colleges across England.

This is a big step forward in the college’s mission to become net zero carbon by 2050. The heritage of the campus means that investment in its buildings is crucial in order to provide versatile and sustainable facilities for students and staff alike.

Sara Russell, Principal, said: “We have superb facilities here, but it is imperative that we continue in our commitment to provide our students and staff with access to modern, state-of-the-art learning and teaching environments. The Schools Rebuilding Programme will enable us to refurbish existing buildings to help meet our sustainability targets and positively impact the learning experience of our students.”

The Department for Education is set to confirm the scope of the refurbishment at college over the coming months.
