Holywell Learning Campus

About This Project
Galliford Try have been appointed to build Holywell Learning Campus for Flintshire County Council as part of the North Wales Schools and Public Buildings Contractor Framework.

The project will see the creation of a new all through school, amalgamating two primary schools and the existing Holywell High School. The new school will be constructed on land at the top of the existing school playing field to prevent the current High School being disrupted. Once complete, the single storey primary school will offer 315 pupil places and replace current local infants and junior schools. The three story secondary school will offer 600 places and replace the existing High School on this site. The school is due to open from September 2016, offering the most up-to-date educational and IT facilities in modern, efficiently designed buildings which will also be available for wider community use.

The campus is being delivered as part of the 21st Century School building programme.

About the Client
Flintshire County Council has a responsibility to review and modernise all school provision, to make sure that we are providing the best possible opportunities for learners, so that they can achieve their full potential.

As part of the 21st Century Schools Programme with Welsh Government, building work for the new primary and secondary schools in Holywell, which will be co-located on the site of the existing High School, began in January 2015.

Planning permission was granted in 2014 and Galliford Try are the contractors selected to build the flagship £30 million development on land at the top of the existing school field.

One new primary school will replace Ysgol Perth y Terfyn Infants and Ysgol y Fron Junior School and will cater for learners up to the age of 11. This will be on the same site as the new facility for Holywell High School, which will be built to provide for the education of 11 to 16 year olds.

The new schools are due to be open from September 2016 with the existing facilities remaining in use until that time to ensure no disruption for learners.

The proposed new three storey secondary school will have 600 places and the single storey primary school will have 315 places. Primary children and secondary age students will be educated in the latest state of the art accommodation with all modern IT facilities to assist with learning.
