Wokingham Borough Council Investing £5.5million for new facilities at St Crispin’s School


Students at St Crispin’s School in Wokingham will be benefitting from excellent new facilities including a new science block, a multi-use games area (MUGA) and a range of refurbished spaces after plans were agreed by the planning committee.

he science block will provide a significantly improved environment for learning, with nine new laboratories designed for 21st Century teaching approaches. It also includes an associated lecture theatre and multi-use teaching space. The block will also be fully accessible and meet disability standards.

In addition to the science block, the plans also include a multi use games area (MUGA) that will replace the existing tennis courts with four tennis / netball courts. The MUGA will be the first phase of the development; this will ensure that the current sports facility will be retained whilst the new science block is erected on the existing tennis courts.

Wokingham Borough Council and St Crispin’s School held an exhibition in October for local residents to find out more about proposals. Members of the design team were on hand to answer any questions people may have in relation to the proposed new science laboratory and teaching facility.

The plans, approved by the planning committee, can be viewed online at: www.wokingham.gov.uk/planning. The application number is F/2011/1920.
