As part of the £20million investment at King David Schools , a four storey new teaching block has been completed and was handed over to the school in November 2010. The new school building allows for lots of natural light, has wide corridors, comfortable seating and attractive, restful colour schemes. Solar power provides 10% of the schools energy requirements.
For the first time, Manchester has brought together its Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme and Primary Capital Programme (PCP) with the new 8500 square meter state of the art building housing the majority of the High School, 420 place primary school and a 60 place nursery. The remainder of the high school accommodation will be provided in the existing sixth form and administration and music blocks.
The overall scheme, including the refurbishment of existing buildings, demolition and landscaping of the new school grounds was completed in July 2011.
