School´s set for £8.4m upgrade
Designs for some of the upgrades at Treviglas

Major plans have been unveiled for an £8.4m upgrade to a Newquay secondary school, which will get under way in the New Year.

Treviglas Academy will be having a refurbishment of the majority of its classrooms plus new science labs, a catering facility and a lecture theatre.

The temporary huts used as classrooms will also be replaced with a new building. The Roseland Multi-Academy, which the academy joined last year, secured the funding for the improvement work from the Government.

The project will be completed over six phases. Headteacher Michelle Dunleavy said: “We were absolutely delighted to receive confirmation. This means our students will be learning in the facilities they deserve, and that we can all be proud of.

“The Roseland Multi-Academy Trust has secured the investment to undergo a massive improvement to Treviglas Academy building.

“Almost every aspect of the school building will experience significant refurbishment. “These improvements will enhance the learning journey of every student.

“The planned improvements will have a hugely positive effect on the learning environment and they will ensure that future generations of young people in Newquay, and the surrounding areas, have excellent facilities in which to receive a the highest standard of education.

“Within the scope of the development there will be a contemporary resource centre, a modern facility for design technology, a lecture theatre and a catering facility.

“A new block of classrooms will also be built to replace the outside huts which were put on the site over 15 years ago as a temporary solution to the growing number of students attending the school.

“The first tranche of work will start in the New Year and the transformational development will be completed over six phases. “The refurbished spaces with new glazing, ceilings, lighting, furniture and complete redecoration will provide teachers with an inspiring setting to deliver their lessons.

“The good quality teaching that learners receive at Treviglas Academy is the strongest influence on the achievements of our learners.

“These planned improvements to our buildings will improve standards further. “We will keep the community updated as to the progress of these developments as they happen, but for now, it’s another reason to celebrate at Treviglas.”

Treviglas Academy had been put in the “requires special measures” category in June 2017 after being rated as inadequate by officials from Ofsted, the schools standards watchdog, for its overall effectiveness.

Treviglas recorded improved GCSE and A-level results in June 2019 after joining the Trust.
