Completion date set for new Woodlands Meed College

The new Woodlands Meed College in Burgess Hill is scheduled to be completed on 25 August 2023.

One-hundred children with special education needs and disabilities can look forward to benefiting from the new facilities which include:

• A new hydrotherapy pool
• 12 new classrooms, with more space and specialist learning areas for music, sciences and food technology
• An outside courtyard and amphitheatre where children can sit together and hold sporting and social events
• High-quality sporting facilities including an all-weather pitch and a two-court sports hall and accessible changing facilities
• A large dining hall and kitchen, common room and a range of therapy space
• New outside learning and play areas including classrooms, an outside gym and gardening areas
• Solar panels on the roof that improve energy efficient, and reduce energy costs and the college’s carbon footprint

Cllr Jacquie Russell, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People said: “I am delighted that when our children return to Woodlands Meed in September, they will be able to start enjoying all the new facilities on offer at the college. These new facilities will help enable children and young people at Woodlands Meed to fulfil their potential, which is a key priority for West Sussex County Council. This has been a complicated project. I would like to thank everyone who has been involved in getting us to this stage as we prepare to complete the new Woodlands Meed College.”

The Contractor will remain on site to complete the demolition of the existing buildings and to complete the external areas.
