Bulmershe School £6m upgrade plans

Plans have been submitted for a £6m upgrade of a Berkshire school.

Proposals for Bulmershe School in Woodley, Wokingham, include a new sixth form building, library and upgrade of the existing facilities.

Some refurbishment work, such as installing new classroom doors, can start in the next few weeks as it is not part of the planning application.

A consultation runs until 18 April and work could begin later this year if plans are approved.

Councillor Rob Stanton, deputy leader of Wokingham Borough Council and chair of The Bulmershe School Project Board, said: "This is a crucial stage in these major plans.

"Bulmershe's students deserve the very best facilities and we welcome your views on our plans to give them these."

The school, a mixed sex comprehensive, was built in 1964.

The plans can be viewed on the council website.
