A vacant Doncaster primary school is set to benefit from a £550k refurbishment, that will seek to accommodate 75 pupils.

Sycamore Primary School in Cantley was closed in 2011, due to plummeting pupil numbers, despite protests from campaigners and the school achieving a good rating from Ofsted.

And now, the site is will be used to form a free school, following a three month renovation by Preston-based architectural and planning consultancy practice, Cassidy + Ashton (C+A).

Peter Harris, director at Cassidy + Ashton, said: “Our plans have been designed to make the best use of the space and create modern and inspiring schools which will meet the future needs of students and teaching staff.”

“The school is a great example of investing in existing assets and using a creative approach, filling a real need in the local community.”

The project is one of three free school renovation schemes across the region, that have a combined value of £2.75m, form part of the Education Funding Agency (EFA) framework.

The renovation work will begin in July, and is set to be completed by September.
