Morgan Sindall Group has been awarded the main construction contract for the new Kenilworth School and Sixth Form on Glasshouse Lane.

The site for the new 2,200 pupil school was acquired in December last year, with Morgan Sindall contracted to do the pre-construction works.

Kenilworth Multi Academy Trust (KMAT) has now awarded the firm the main contract. They will push ahead with the main building works which are due to start this month and be completed in June 2023.

The new school is expected to open to new and existing pupils in September 2023.

Kenilworth School & Sixth Form has been planning the project that will see it move from its two sites on Leyes Lane and Rouncil Lane to Southcrest Farm since 2014.

The school will also be launching a major fundraising project to provide enhanced facilities at the new site to benefit the students and community in Kenilworth.

Hayden Abbott, executive head of Kenilworth School & Sixth Form and Multi Academy Trust said: “It is an exciting time ahead for the future of young people and the community of Kenilworth.

"This represents years of hard work and successful partnership working and I would like to pay tribute to the contribution of many external partners, especially Warwick District Council, who have supported us to achieve our vision.

"The new school will provide modern educational facilities to accommodate the changing needs of the school community over the coming decades. Younger students in our local feeder schools can look forward to enhanced opportunities in the new build. "

Richard Frape, project director, Morgan Sindall Group added: “We are excited to be working with Kenilworth School to deliver this project and recognise the importance to the town of this major investment.

"Our experience in delivering high quality infrastructure and educational projects will ensure a long lasting legacy for the community of Kenilworth.”
