£1.4m injection for Ambergate Sports College!

on .

Ambergate Sports College has won a Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) worth £1.4 million pounds to expand current classroom facilities.

This fantastic news means they can now build new classrooms and improve facilities for pupils whilst catering for an increase in pupil numbers in the future. 

Ambergate has drawn up exciting plans for a two storey block extension. It will include eight new classrooms, as well as a much needed dining hall and kitchen extension.New build Amb3

The current school canteen is too small to accommodate everyone and was originally built in the 70’s to cater for 55 pupils.  Ambergate currently has 141 pupils on role.  The new building will be built to the left side of the school on the playground (the playground will then be extended following the build and the old mobile classrooms on the field will eventually be removed).

New build Amb


Headteacher, James Ellis, said: “The application was submitted because of an expansion in school numbers. The new block will provide excellent classroom facilities for our pupils, along with new toilets and extensions to the kitchen and sports hall.”

“We’re hoping to open the new building officially around Easter time.”

Look out for further updates coming soon….
