Taking shape: Derby High sports hall on target
1:53pm Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
BURY Council’s leader returned to his old school to view progress on the building of a new £1.46 million state-of-the-art sports hall.
During his visit to Derby High School, Cllr Mike Connolly met headteacher Alyson Byrne, the managing director of contractors Parkinson’s Steve Williamson, site manager Carl Hannah, and chairman of the school governors Peter Whitnall.
Mr Williamson said the brickwork was about to start and the building would soon be taking shape.
Mrs Byrne said: “The size and scope of the new sports hall can already be seen as it sits proudly adjacent to the school’s extensive playing fields. The school eagerly looks forward to completion in February, 2014.”
Last year, after it was announced that The Derby was to remain at its current site in Radcliffe Road and would not be transferring to Radcliffe, it was also announced that a sports hall would be built.
The Derby is the only high school in the borough without such a dedicated facility.
