King Alfred School Academy, Highbridge

Major roof repairs underway at King Alfred School Academy in Highbridge are making ‘great progress’, the school has said this week.

Improved signs and window art have already been introduced in recent months to make the site look brighter and, most recently, the work on the roof has been making great progress.

The replacement of the roof is a major project that has been funded through grants made available to the Academy.

Principal Nathan Jenkins said this week: “The school environment is absolutely vital in developing the school as it helps people to feel happy and valued.”

“In work and in school people deserve to work well presented, well-kept modern and professional environments.”

“We are thrilled with the way the work is currently going and look forward to seeing the final results.”

New skylights and windows have also been installed during the works.

The next phase of the work will involve the replacement of sections of roof in A block, including the sports hall and 1610 building.

Attention will then turn to the interior areas of the school once the roofing work is complete.
