People can see how building work is progressing on-line at the new £26 million Voyager School, Jack Hunt and Ken Stimpson Community schools.

Construction company Bouygues UK Ltd has set up a website www.peterborough.project-info.co.uk complete with photographs and progress reports from the three schools.

Mechanical and electrical works have now started in the new building and the refurbishment and extension of the dining area, which includes a new kitchen and dining room.

At Jack Hunt School in Ledbury Road, Netherton, Peterborough, access to the swimming pool is complete and the new library is nearing completion.

Concrete works are now complete at the new Voyager School in Mountsteven Avenue, Walton, Peterborough. Windows have been fitted in the science laboratories, teaching areas, media arts room, drama studio, arts and textiles areas, administration areas, crèche, library and assembly hall.

The steel structure of the new sports hall and special educational needs areas are now finished. The building will continue to be waterproofed over coming weeks and electrical works have now started.

Councillor Geoff Ridgway, Cabinet member for Education and Children’s Services, said: “I recently visited all three school sites and was very impressed with what I saw. Work is going to plan and all of the sites were very neat and orderly. All three schools will offer a first class learning environment to give Peterborough youngsters the best chance of reaching their full potential.”

Director of children’s services Mohammed Mehmet said: “I was very impressed by what I saw at all three sites which will provide state-of-the-art facilities for our children and young people to learn and develop in the future. The ongoing work at our secondary schools is just one example of how we are building for a better future for everyone in Peterborough. We will all reap the benefits of this investment in secondary school education in the city.”

Chief executive Gillian Beasley said: “The city is growing and we want to make sure a bigger Peterborough is a better city for everyone to live, work and visit with high quality new buildings offering first class facilities. We saw some excellent examples of this on all three of the school sites.”
