A REDDITCH school has been selected to take part in the Government’s School Rebuilding Programme.
Last year, Arrow Vale High School was rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, and was selected as one of the latest 239 schools which will be rebuilt or substantially refurbished as part of the programme.
The scheme delivers on the Government’s commitment to levelling-up opportunities around the country by giving every child access to the best classrooms, wherever they go to school.
The funding for Arrow Vale High School will help to deliver state-of-the-art learning environments for pupils.
The new buildings will be more energy efficient, helping sto keep bills down and meet the country’s net zero commitments.
Redditch MP Rachel Maclean visited Arrow Vale where she met with executive principal Ian Mellor and student ambassadors Tashantie Thomas and Macey Carlin-Grasby.
She said: “Thank you to the school ambassadors for showing me round. It was clear how proud they are to be an Arrow Vale student.
“Ever since I was first elected, I have been working closely with the Government to secure more investment in our schools – and that’s exactly what we’re seeing.
“From the total core schools budget set to reach its highest level in history next year to Arrow Vale being selected to take part in the School Rebuilding Programme, I’m delivering on the promises that I’ve made to constituents.”
