I visited Temple Moor High School Science College this morning...

I haven't been for a while and it was brilliant to see what has been achieved so far with the remodelling of the buildings. I walked around the site with Martin Fleetwood, headteacher, and the sheer scale of the challenge Martin and his colleagues have been managing is quite astonishing. The construction of the school is going on as the school works and as the construction work moves from phase to phase the school repositions itself accordingly and it is simply amazing to see how the team have managed this complex and challenging logistical problem and still delivered for their students.

The building is developing wonderfully and the LEP and Interserve are doing an incredible job. The scale of the building, the light, colour and space is great and t is going to be a hugely impressive building when it is finished next Easter. The last two phases of the work will finish the transformation of a sad and worn out school into a simply brilliant learning place. Anyone who thinks the remodelled elements of Building Schools for the Future is a second best option should look at Temple Moor and be prepared to be amazed; because I was!
