Three schools in Redditch are set to receive a share of almost £500 million to make improvements to buildings.

It is through the latest round of the Government’s £498 million Condition Improvement Fund (CIF).

Secretary of State for Education, Nadhim Zahawi MP, has announced funding for 1,405 projects at 1,129 academies, sixth-form colleges and voluntary aided schools.

The successful schools in Redditch are Trinity High School and Sixth Form Centre, Webheath Academy Primary School and Birchensale Middle School.

This investment forms part of the Government’s plan to ensure that every child has the opportunity of a place at a good school, whatever their background.

Rachel said: “I’m delighted three schools in Redditch have received this funding boost which will allow them to carry out vital improvement works.

“It’s essential every child in Redditch has access to a first-class education and schools which are maintained to the highest standards.”
