USH Expansion

USH has three main feeder schools from within the Jefferys Education Partnership (Hollybrook Junior, Shirley Junior and Wordsworth Primary). We were delighted to see the first cohort of Wordsworth students join us in September 2017.

In preparation for the additional students from Wordsworth Primary School over the coming years, our multi-million pound expansion has begun.

In June 2017 planning was granted for a new eight-classroom block and building work was completed in the summer of 2018. So far, our expansion plans have also included the following projects:

·  Two new science laboratories (completed summer 2017)

·  New IT suite (completed summer 2017)

·  Additional staff parking (completed summer of 2018)

·  An additional catering servery (completed summer of 2018)

·  Upgrade to our wireless system  (completed summer of 2018)


We will shortly be adding photos of our site changes.


NEW SPORTS HALL (March 2019)

Phase 1 of our expansion is now complete.

A second consultation meeting for local residents was held on Tuesday 26th March to discuss phase 2 of our expansion plans, a new sports hall. This is the final significant change to our site through expansion.
