Jack visits Winterbourne International Academy

This morning Jack Lopresti MP visited the Winterbourne International Academy to see how the new £20 million refurbishment and new build was progressing.

The Winterbourne International Academy which is an 11-18 co-educational Academy has benefitted from £20 million in Government investment for a brand new building that will replace the majority of the old, existing buildings. This investment will transform the school and provide a modern environment and learning facilities for pupils.

Jack said "This investment by the government will give Winterbourne Academy modern buildings and is an investment in the future of our young people. The Winterbourne International Academy consistently has outstanding results and I am very happy that they will have an outstanding building to reflect their success. I am very excited about returning next year to see the finished building"

The new facilities which will include a new auditorium, learning resource centre, and interactive theatre will be opened in 2014.
