Site Managers of the future at South Farnborough Junior School

Pupils at South Farnborough Junior School in Hampshire had the opportunity recently to don some hard hats and hi-vis jackets and take a look around Osborne’s current building project at their school.

Alongside their teachers, three groups of pupils (or perhaps budding engineers and site managers of the future) were taken around the site with Site Manager James Roach and the team to learn more about health and safety, and the importance of staying safe near construction sites. Along with finding out about how their new school extension was being built, they also had a chance to ask questions about everything they ever wanted to know about buildings. 

Osborne’s current project at South Farnborough Junior School is a two storey extension, which will see four new classrooms, toilets and a staff area. The existing school will also see the refurbishment of some of their classrooms and a new changing area. Once completed, this will enable the school to increase their capacity to 360 pupils and allow an extra form group to join on entry.
