Big day for BSF programme

By on 24/08/2009 in News

Media briefing date: Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Time: 9am

Location: Chamberlain Room, Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham City Centre

Details: A unique glimpse into Birmingham's future education landscape will be offered following the creation of a Local Education Partnership to kick start the first £180 million phase of the city's Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme.

Many of Birmingham's schools will be transformed over the next 15 years under the city's Building Schools for the Future programme to provide more adaptable, technologically-led and stimulating learning environments.

Key figures behind the drive will be available to answer questions about what the transformation will mean for Birmingham pupils and the way they learn.

Construction of the first schools has already started at Broadway, Stockland Green Technology College and on the co-located Holte Secondary School, Mayfield Special Needs School and Lozells Primary School sites.  All of these are due to open in March 2011. Design development is well underway on 14 more schools which will open in 2012.
