Four Bradford schools win out in government’s new building programme

Pudsey Grangefield – one of the Leeds schools built under Labour’s previous scheme

Twenty four schools in Yorkshire – four of them in Bradford – are to be either rebuilt or revamped under the government’s new Priority School Building Programme.

Education secretary Michael Gove revealed the list of the 261 schools (out of 587 who applied) whose bids to the programme were successful in a written ministerial statement today.

Some of the 55% of schools who failed to get on to the list will have their needs addressed through other funding the government has made available for maintenance, Gove said.

The PSB programme replaced the previous government’s Building Schools for the Future, which was scrapped by Gove in July 2010.

Here’s the list of those who got lucky:

    Morley Newlands got £10 million to rebuild the school. My daughter went there last year. I asked her if there were any problem, and she said it was cold in one of the add on porta cabin classsrooms. The main block was built in around 1961. The new school was stated to have a guaranteed life of 60 years. But the report in the YEP didnt say where the money was coming from.
