A new look for Tewkesbury School Image

A new look for Tewkesbury School

One of Gloucestershire’s biggest schools has plans to create a bigger and more secure visitors’ entrance, as part of plans to refurbish one of its blocks.

Tewkesbury School, which is one of the county’s biggest mixed sex secondary schools, has submitted a planning application to Tewkesbury Borough Council to add an extension and carry out glazing work to one of the school's teaching blocks..

A report by Roberts Limbrick Architects, within the application, refers to the plan to demolish the “dilapidated” wooden entrance and replace it with a new one.

It said: “The brief was developed together with Tewkesbury School to refurbish the existing E Block to increase its performance and overall appearance.

“An important factor of the scheme was to add a secure visitors’ entrance which would avoid them walking through the school grounds - which is the current situation.

If the plans for the Ashchurch Road-based school are approved, its main building footprint will increase by 14 sq m because of the extension to the visitors’ entrance.

The architects said new windows and panel boards would help to improve the overall appearance and performance of the building at the school, whose headteacher is Gary Watson.

The firm’s report added that staff areas would be remodelled to optimise the space, key learning resources would be moved to make them more accessible and classroom layouts would be improved.

If the plans are approved, all of the memorial trees planted by the school will be retained and new shrubs and hedges will be planted in the visitors’ car park.
