Demolition work of the destroyed school buildings started in December

 

Pupils and parents of a Leyland school destroyed by a fire will be able to see how its future looks this week.

The Archdiocese of Liverpool has drawn up designs of how the parts of Leyland St Mary’s Catholic Technology College which were damaged by the blaze in September could be rebuilt.

A spokesman said: “Following the return of all pupils to the Leyland site in December, attention now turns to the progression of work to fully reinstate the school buildings.

“Designs for the new building are presently being developed and an application for planning permission is scheduled to be submitted by the end of February.

“Between now and then there will be meetings with the school community to present the design proposals and receive feedback.

“The programme to which all parties are working targets the opening of the new accommodation in Autumn 2015.”

Parents, pupils and staff are invited to visit the school on Royal Avenue between 4pm and 7pm on Wednesday to view the plans and have their say on the designs.
