Big Consultation event...


The two teams bidding to become the council’s private sector partner to deliver Wolverhampton future schools recently exhibited their plans for the first schools to be transformed by the Building School for the Future (BSF) Programme.  Wolverhampton City Council’s BSF team hosted two public consultation events one at Highfields Science Specialist School which is to be rebuilt with Penn Fields Special School co-locating onto the site.  The second event was held at The King’s CofE School which will be remodelled with Tettenhall Wood Special School co-locating onto the site.
The events enabled “Environments for Learning” and “Inspired Spaces” consortium to exhibit 3d models of what the schools will look like following the transformation.  Plans showing interiors and fly through films were also displayed at both events.
Over 200 people attended these events including local residents, students, staff, parents and governors. 
Many were impressed with the designs prompting discussions with both bid teams about what the community facilities will look like, how the schools will be accessed and how the construction will be handled.
Parents, Students and Pupils showed an interest in the future learning environments and how they will look.
Comments cards were completed at these events for the Bid Teams to use to support their planning statement about community involvement.  These comments will be used to form part of the formal design stage on appointment of the preferred bidder.
The Building Schools for the Future programme which will bring into Wolverhampton £370 million of investment to transform all schools serving secondary age pupils into the 21st century.  The Programme is currently evaluating finals bids submitted by the both bid teams.  The “preferred bidder” who will become the selected private sector partner to deliver the programme will be announced early February 2010.
