A Helston school where some of the windows are nailed shut to stop them falling out could get a slice of £40m of funding.

Rebuilding C Block at the community college is one of six projects across Cornwall bidding for the government cash.

Andrew Wallis, the Council's Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said, "We are delighted the government has allocated a further £2 billion to improve the conditions of schools across England and will be working hard to ensure that schools in Cornwall benefit from this funding. 

"The criteria for applying for the funding was very strict which meant that we were not able to include all the schools we initially considered but we are confident that these six schools have a very strong case. 

"I would like to thank the Council staff and the headteachers and governors from the schools for their hard work in putting together the expressions of interest which we have submitted today.

“We are hopeful that the Government will look carefully at the submissions and will also be working with our MPS to secure this much needed funding.”   

The six schools being put forward are:

Helston – three schemes have been proposed – including replacing C Block, replacing C block and E Block and a whole school replacement option.

Humphrey Davey School – replacement of Block 2 (general teaching)

Hayle Community College – Block 1, main block / general teaching and Block 6 – general teaching and Sports Hall.  

Budehaven Community School – Science, DT and Art Block

Treviglas Community College  – replacement of 6 x double Elliot buildings to permanent accommodation.

Biscovey Nursery and Infant Community School – main block roof replacement.
 

The council anticipates that the total value of the works needed to be carried out at the six schools is in the region of £40 million, however, any final value of schemes will be decided by the Education Funding Agency.
