North Lincolnshire Council's Building Schools for the Future


In September 2007, the Government approved North Lincolnshire Council's Building Schools for the Future (BSF) strategy and gave the council the go-ahead to invite bidders to submit their development proposals. The submissions were evaluated by a group of council officers, specialist advisers and school representatives.

This school replacement project is being delivered as part of the £90m Building Schools for the Future programme for North Lincolnshire Council. It consolidates two existing schools into a new site for 950 pupils.

'Branching from this central space are smaller Home Base communities, giving the feeling of a 'school within a school'.'

The design has been developed as a modern campus-style facility, resembling a smart higher education or business campus. At its heart is the Forum, a mixing space for the whole school. Branching from this central space are smaller Home Base communities, giving the feeling of a 'school within a school'.

Tully De'Ath were commissioned by NPS to undertake a Flood Risk Assessment which formed part of a detailed planning application for the re-development of the previous school site.

The purpose of the FRA is to demonstrate to the planning authority and the Environment Agency that the proposed redevelopment is subject to an acceptable level of flood risk and should not increase the likelihood of flooding elsewhere off-site.
