Guiseley School were pleased to have been awarded Priority School Building project status in 2005. After an extensive planning and design process between the Department of Education, our contractor Galliford Try and school leaders, we are pleased to have been awarded planning permission early in 2019.
Two new blocks will be built on the school site. A new Sports and Arts block, due to complete in January 2020, will house a Sports Hall, Music classrooms, Art classrooms, IT facilities, an auditorium and a dedicated dining room. A general teaching block, due to complete in 2021, will house Science and Technology facilities as well as general teaching accommodation. The project will also include new landscaping, outdoor court areas and improved parking and access facilities.
Work has already begun on the first block. Students and staff are excited about the prospect of watching their new buildings develop over the next 10 months. We hope to be able to start showing students around the site soon and we will develop the information here on our website as the build progresses.
