The new £5m school, commissioned by Lancashire County Council, is an extension and refurbishment of the former Ashton Community Science College on Ribbleton Hall Drive.

Designed to accommodate 140 people with a broad spectrum of Special Education Needs (SEN), the 64,584 sq. ft. school includes a new hydrotherapy pool, ancillary accessible changing, toilet and shower facilities, hard and soft landscaping and a sensory garden.

Michael Conlon, Chairman, said:

 “Thanks to our broad range of experience delivering education projects, we have been able to create a school that will support the pupils with an engaging environment that will support ongoing development.
