Morgan Ashurst has won a £37 million contract to build two replacement high schools and a sixth form college under Liverpool City Council’s Building Schools for the Future programme.
The firm will build teaching blocks for Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School for Boys on Honey’s Green Lane and Broughton Hall High School for Girls on Yew Tree Lane.
It will also create a sixth form between the new schools, which will bridge across Monastery Road to link up the entire education complex.
The three-storey 2,750 sq m sixth form will accommodate a host of shared facilities which can also be used by students of both schools.
At Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School for Boys, Morgan Ashurst will build a three-storey, 8,000 sq m teaching block, which will house a food court, an art and technology department, a PE department, a music and performing arts department and an activity hall complete with stage.
At Broughton Hall High School, Morgan Ashurst will also construct a three-storey 6,000 sq m teaching block which will house a separate food court, sports hall with changing facilities and a performing arts department.
The entire project is due to be completed in September 2012.
