Marlwood School

Facelift to Marlwood School

We are very excited that the multi-million pound programme of refurbishments and upgrades has begun at our school.

The investment will be overseen by our Headteacher Seema Purewal, will include new classrooms for art, design technology and science as well as new student toilet areas.

The project forms part of an £18.1m refurbishment of The Castle School and Marlwood School which is jointly funded by the Castle School Education Trust (CSET) and South Gloucestershire Council. 


As well as improving the facilities, sustainability at the school will be addressed with the main building exterior benefitting from upgraded insulation to the roof with new glazing and a new efficient heating system added.

We are delighted to be starting work on this important and much-needed project to upgrade our facilities and make our school more sustainable, which in turn will help us continue to serve our local community.

The creation of new classrooms within the main building, which will be fully-resourced with new equipment, will be a huge advantage to our students’ learning and our science and design technology offering will become a strength of the school when complete.


By closing the old buildings which previously housed these classrooms and making significant thermal improvements we are working towards low energy-use standards. 

We understand that there may be some disruption caused to students and the local community while we undertake the work, but we are committed to ensuring the project is completed as soon as possible and hope that the end result will outweigh the inconvenience.

The project is being managed by Burke Hunter Adams with Speller Metcalfe handling the construction. Sustainable architectural practice Quattro Design Architects designed the project and provided the CGI images.
