Designed by Belfast-based architects, Povall Worthington, the works comprise four key stages:

The ground floor will comprise an entrance lobby, 3nr team changing rooms with showers, staff changing, PE office and ancillary accommodation including WCs, stores and plant rooms. First floor accommodation will include a fitness suite, team changing room with showers and a PE classroom
– Construction of a 7-a-side synthetic hockey pitch with all associated works will be carried out. The existing 4nr artificial grass tennis courts will be resurfaced
– Refurbishment works within the existing school gymnasium to provide art suite accommodation
– Refurbishment works within the first floor of the main teaching block to provide a science suite
The project is due for completion during summer 2017.
