Bury school renovations feature electrical upgrades


A recent upgrade – representing a £1 million investment – is equipping The Heys School in Bury with new electrical features, along with a host of other updates.

Formerly operating as the Prestwich Arts College, the school has now become an academy after joining the Rowan Learning Trust. To prepare for its new status, a programme involving extensive enhancements is underway.

Commenting on the improvements, Rachel Evans, Head Teacher for the school, said:

“They will make the site safer and more secure, will enable us to further develop the curriculum, and will create better community access to our facilities.”

Enterprises planning electrical installations in Chester, Bury and other parts of North West England must use certified professionals to fit systems to ensure work is completed to British safety standards.

New electrical elements on site include new lighting for the car park, electronically powered security gates and new internal electrics. Additional work carried out during the refurbishment involves a new roof and railings for the school, updated signage and improved access routes for pupils, such as ramps and walkways.

A more extensive area for teaching will be created via new classroom space, and an upgrade to the heating system and the school’s windows will improve the facility’s energy efficiency rating.

The school’s new name and its crest, which features the Manchester bee, were decided based on suggestions from its 760 students. As one of the Rowan Learning Trust’s members, the Heys School will also receive funds for a secondary scheme to update additional classrooms and its library.
