Pupils at Hill West Primary School - part of the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership - are set to benefit from new, modern, energy efficient school buildings as a further 50 schools are confirmed for the Prime Minister’s 10-year rebuilding programme to level up opportunities for all.

The School Rebuilding Programme is due to deliver 500 rebuilding projects over the next decade, which will benefit tens of thousands of pupils over their lifetime.

The schools in this round include primary, secondary and special and alternative provision schools, with more than 60 per cent of the schools in the North and Midlands.

The rebuilds and refurbishments will create modern education environments, providing new facilities from classrooms and science labs, to sports halls and dining rooms.

The new school buildings will also be net-zero carbon in operation, helping meet the Government’s net zero target.

The Government is also confirming another core funding boost for schools through the National Funding Formula.

Every pupil is set to benefit from the largest funding increase in a decade as part of £14.4bn funding increase, first announced in 2019.

Dr Beth Clarke, Headteacher of Hill West Primary School, part of the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership (ATLP), said: “We are thrilled to have been chosen for this ambitious project, which will include state-0f-the-art facilities and modernisation to future proof Hill West and Improve the learning environment for all our pupils.

“This rebuild will transform our school - not only bringing with it amazing opportunities for our pupils now, but also for all the pupils who are to pass through Hill West in the future.

“We are extremely proud of the Hill West community and all that we have achieved together. This programme will enable us to build on our successes to date and to share those benefits with our children and families, both at our school and across the wider Arthur Terry Learning Partnership.”

Andrew Mitchell, MP for Sutton Coldfield, said: “I am delighted for Hill West Primary School, the ATLP and our community by this announcement. This significant investment will bring a welcome boost to our schools, resulting in lasting improvements and opportunities for all.

“As an avid supporter of schools in my constituency of the royal town of Sutton Coldfield, and having been at Hill West just last week, I am pleased to be part of this exciting development.”
