A new Focus school campus on the horizon for September 2014!

A Brethren Education Trust has successfully purchased a building and site with the intention of transforming it into a school campus. The vision is to educate approximately 160 students in academic years 3 to 13, from the Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire areas. The planning application for the campus was approved in July 2013.

The building and adjoining site, known as ‘The Oaks’, is located on Potton Road, Biggleswade, Bedfordshire. The entire site is approximately three acres or 12000m² and includes Oak Tree Farm house with a 700m² barn.  The original planning proposal included a large proportion of the house plot for the campus premises, with the barn allocated for use as a hall and additional classroom provision.

The accommodation in the main building measures approximately 1700m² and will provide classrooms as well as specialist rooms for Science, CDT, Cookery and Technology.  The site is being carefully designed so that there will be ample space for on-site PE and play areas; parking for staff, visitor and volunteers’ cars, and for the 12-seater minibuses used as student transport.

David Stacey, of the Ermine Education Trust commented: “The new building will provide a state-of-the-art facility to replace the existing Focus school campuses in Barnet and Cheshunt. There will be many days of hard work over the coming months, but the site will be rejuvenated to become a busy and vibrant education establishment, where teachers and students will appreciate the excellent facilities that will be provided.
