A Cheshire high school is to receive a big upgrade.

Existing portacabins are to be demolished and a new four-classroom block is to be built at Helsby High School, with the building work expected to be complete by this summer.

Contacted to carry out the work is Pave Aways, which is delighted to announce its latest appointment in the education sector, for the replacement of the dilapidated mobile classrooms.

Working on behalf of Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC), multi-award-winning Pave Aways is poised to bring its expertise to enhance the learning environment of the school.

Commenting on this significant achievement, Steven Owen, Managing Director of Pave Aways, said: "We are honoured to have been chosen for this much-needed project at Helsby High School.

"We understand the importance of creating great learning environments, and we are excited to contribute to the development of the school."

The firm added the contract will also provide a valuable economic boost to Helsby and the surrounding area as it will be employing locally based site staff and businesses in the supply chain, within a 30-mile radius.

Rob Gilhooley, senior project officer at CWaC, said: “We are delighted to be working with Pave Aways with a targeted replacement of the mobile classrooms most in need of replacement.

"This scheme will provide modern, state of the art classroom facilities for up to 120 pupils.”
