Franklin Ellis have submitted a planning application for the redevelopment of Farnborough School in Clifton, Nottingham. The school has specialist technology status and will incorporate a STEM teaching facility. The project which is a PFI scheme involves the demolition of all the existing school buildings on the site apart from the sports hall and Year 7 base and the creation of around 7000 sq m of new teaching accommodation with associated outdoor learning areas. The school will accommodate 1050 pupils aged 11-16. New sports facilities include grass pitches and a large astro turf area with car parking, landscaping and outdoor play areas completing the scheme. A planning decision is anticipated in February 2012.
