The Tenterden Schools Trust, a group of schools around Ashford, Kent, has now secured £2.8 million worth of funding from the UK Government’s dedicated “Condition Improvement Fund for Academies”.
The awarded funds are set to be used for electrical upgrades needed at five of the Trust’s schools. These include Homewood School and Sixth Form Centre, Tenterden Infants School, Tenterden Junior School, Rolvenden Primary School and St Michael’s Primary School.
The onsite upgrades planned involve all-new closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems and brand-new lighting to replace existing equipment that has become outdated. The extensive overhaul for the schools will also include updates to the current heating systems to prepare for the colder months coming later in the year. Some of the allocated funding will also be used to build St Michael’s Primary School a new reception.
According to In Your Area, CEO for the Trust, Sally Leas, commented:
“We are delighted to have been awarded further substantial grants in the latest round of Government funding. These grants represent a further major investment at all our sites and underline our commitment to securing the future for the young people in the Trust by providing the very best school environments.”
Academies and enterprises alike can rely on professional electrical services in Chester, Tenterden and other parts of the country for a wide range of services. Certified electricians can upgrade existing systems or fit new protective devices from smoke detectors and fire alarms to the latest advanced in CCTV systems, ensuring equipment is operating effectively.
