Schools in West Bridgford and Rushcliffe among those to benefit from upgraded heating

Schools across Nottinghamshire are to benefit from funding which will be used to improve, upgrade, and replace existing facilities, with several schools in the county becoming more environmentally friendly due to new heating systems and better insulation.

Twenty one improvement projects at 14 different primary and secondary schools will go ahead after successful bids from the government’s Condition Improvement Fund (CIF).

The CIF is an annual bidding round where eligible schools can apply for funding so they can improve or expand their facilities.

The improvements include:

  • Kirkby College, in Ashfield: new windows
  • The Florence Nightingale Academy, in Ashfield: a new boiler and heating system
  • Alderman White School, in Broxtowe: a new boiler and heating system, new windows and doors
  • Bramcote College, in Broxtowe: new windows and doors
  • Langold Dyscarr Community School, in Bassetlaw: new windows
  • Carlton le Willows Academy, in Gedling: new windows and heating system

“I’m very pleased that schools in our county have been able to secure this extra government funding. It’s great news for schools in Nottinghamshire, and it means better facilities for our children and young people.

“Many of these new projects will mean our schools will become more environmentally friendly, using more efficient and sustainable heating systems and better insultation.”
