Overhaul announced for two Sheffield schools

Sheffield City Council is backing plans to rebuild two primary schools. Fox Hill Primary on Powey Road will be rebuilt on the same site as the existing school. The old school will then be demolished.

Prince Edward Primary School, on City Road, will also be rebuilt on part of the existing school site and part of a cleared Council housing site. The future of the cleared site will be discussed at a later date.

Pupils will be able to continue with their studies in both cases and will have minimal disruption while work is carried out. All staff will retain their jobs as well.

"It is great to be able to rebuild these two schools that need lots of improvements. Research has shown a good educational environment improves educational attainment and behaviour."

– Councillor Jackie Drayton
