The next phase of development on Penistone Grammar School is underway. The gradual expansion of the school started in the summer of 2018, with the programme to create fit-for-purpose facilities for a growing number of pupils.
Working alongside Triton Construction Ltd, the completion of the new extension building is undergoing its final finishes, services connections and landscape works.
The new extension is located opposite to the main entrance facing the historical town centre. It is connected to the existing facilities through a glazed link. The dug down extension mediates the change in topography, solving potential circulation issues between levels, furthermore, matching the materials with the dynamic existing façade minimises the visual impact. These much-needed additional facilities include science laboratories, an IT specialist room and general teaching classrooms.
