St Peter and St Paul Academy has been successful in securing significant funding for 2 projects to improve the site for our community.

There were 3800 bids put in nationally and only 1435 successful bids – SSPP were successful with both bids that we submitted!


Project 1 – Roof Covering Replacement

All of the main building and the 6th Form/ ICT/ Humanities block will have roof covering replacement as well as new fascia, soffit, drainpipes and roof lights. The work will ensure that the buildings remain in a good condition for many years to come.

The aim is to complete this project by September 2017. Work has started but there will be minimal disruption to Teaching and Learning between now and the end of this academic year.


Project 2 – Safeguarding and Site Security

To enhance our current provision the following work will be undertaken:

A new perimeter fence will be erected around the whole site.

There will be improved gate access off Western Avenue and also on the pathway linking the church and school. These gates will have an intercom/video link to reception.

A new CCTV system will be installed.

A new visitor signing in system will be installed.

Improved lighting will be installed around the site.

The aim is to get the all of the works completed by September 2017.
