Morris Property complete first phase of expansion plan at Adcote School

The first phase of the exciting expansion programme for Adcote School has been completed on time by Morris Property. The two contemporary new buildings comprise of a boarding house and a classroom block which will facilitate Adcote’s increasing pupil numbers.

A brand new boarding house named “Aston Hall” will provide ensuite accommodation for 48 girls and two matrons. The house contains two large common rooms and plenty of facilities.

Alongside the two new buildings, an existing classroom has been updated by Morris Property to fit in with the new style. The classrooms are air conditioned and equipped with the latest computer technology. 

Morris Property also extended the dining room, the ‘Darby Restaurant’ into an adjoining classroom which will provide seating for a further 50 girls.

A building known as the “Ink Pot”, a former residential unit, has now been refurbished and extended to create a sixth form centre and will provide a wonderful building for the sixth form students to use for study and relaxation.

All work has been completed efficiently and is of high quality in time for the arrival of the new students. It took Morris Property just 12 weeks to complete the £750,000 new building and renovation works.

The project doesn’t end there though. Morris Property has begun constructing the foundations for the new sports hall which is due to be completed by October half term and Adcote School is planning to work with Morris Property to build another two boarding houses with construction due to start late 2014/early 2015. Each house will provide rooms for 60 pupils.

This year Adcote School has invested over two million pounds in additional buildings and facilities to expand the popular school and complement the original Grade I listed building.
