Statement on pilot project to rebuild Campsmount Technology College

The Department for Education announces that work has begun on a pilot proposal to rebuild the Doncaster college.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

A Department for Education spokesman said:

The independent Capital Review team is working with building companies on a pilot proposal to rebuild Campsmount Technology College in Doncaster. Under plans, the new school could be potentially built ahead of the original schedule and with significant cost savings.

The Government believes there are better, faster and more cost-effective ways of rebuilding our schools in need of repair, without compromising on having a safe school environment for pupils to learn in. The Capital Review team’s final report will be submitted at the end of the year and we look forward to the outcome of their pilot project at Campsmount Technology College.
