Some of our students have been doing a local letter drop of consultation letters to our school neighbours.



1st Feb 2021 - Agreement...

I am delighted to say that the local authority have agreed to fund for us to have a brand new primary school built which will be on Skellingthorpe road. In addition, a significant part of our current site on Hykeham road will be renovated to create our secondary school provision.

 

We are hopeful that the primary school will be complete by December 2022 and at this point our primary school students will transition into a beautiful purpose built primary special school. The school will be able to cater for 130 students with a provision for all needs including profound and multiple learning difficulties, complex autism, severe learning difficulties and moderate learning difficulties.

 

Once the primary school students have moved to the new site, the current site will begin renovation and we are hopeful for completion by September 2024. The secondary site will also be able to accommodate all needs and will have 206 students on roll.

 

Although there will be two sites to St Christopher’s, we will be one school and students from the primary school will automatically have a place at the secondary site once they reach the end of year 6.

 

As part of the building project specifications, there will be some fantastic facilities and excellent landscape designs on both sites. On our primary school we will have a hydrotherapy pool, hard court play area, very large playing field, sensory garden, horticulture area. Classroom will have their own secure outside play area with a beautiful tree line around the school boundary. Internally we will have a hydrotherapy pool, soft play, sensory room, rebound studio/hall all with modern accessible corridors around the whole building. In addition we will have a beautiful open planned library, social skills and laundry room, nurses and physiotherapy room with classrooms having access to calming/group rooms and toilet/hygiene suite facilities. The second floor will be staff only area with meeting room facilities.

 

Our secondary school will have its main block taken down and replaced with fantastic PMLD classrooms, a brand new reception area, new kitchen, main hall, rebound studio/hall, two new ASD classrooms and the second floor will have four purpose built SLD classrooms with a food technology room and social skills and laundry room and a secure staff area with meeting room facilities.

 

Our current parking and transport facilities are not ideal therefore the design team has focused on creating plenty of parking for all of our staff and visitors without the need to park off site. In addition the transport model will ensure that all our minibuses can get on to site without creating queues on Hykeham road. The exterior of the school will have a brand new purpose built hard court area for sport as well as excellent parking facilities for staff and visitors.

I want to thank the design teams and all the other specialist teams who are working tirelessly with us to ensure that we are able to provide a first class provision that cater for all additional needs for the Lincoln area.

 

We are keen to support our local community and to work with our neighbouring residence to create a positive environment that keeps the heart of the landscape at the centre of the design. We are hopeful to hire out our facilities to our local communities during holidays so that our neighbours can also enjoy the beautiful new facilities

6th Feb 2020 - Council Approve Extension...

I am delighted to inform you that plans have been approved by Lincolnshire County Council's Executive to provide an additional 133 school places at St Christopher's School with a new purpose built primary school on the former Usher Junior School site, on Skellingthorpe Road.

 

Once the primary school is built our current St Christopher's on Hykeham Road site will undergo extensive redevelopment and remodeling to provide specialist secondary-age school. 

 

Thank you again for your ongoing support, this is a very positive and exciting stage of the schools journey.
