School starts to rebuild

Construction work has started on the £20m rebuild of Manchester’s King David School in Crumpsall.

The Eaton Road site is currently home to an 800-place high school and sixth form, a junior and infant school and nursery.

Work will be completed at the school next year with pupils moving in during December 2010. The overall scheme, including the refurbishment of existing buildings, demolition and landscaping of the new school grounds will be finished by July 2011.

The new 8,465 square metre building will house a 420-place primary school, a 60-place nursery and the majority of the high school.

The remainder of the high school accommodation will be provided in the existing sixth form and administration and music blocks.
