Ambergate Sports College have won a Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) worth £1.4 million pounds to expand current classroom facilities.
This fantastic news means we can now build new classrooms and improve facilities for our pupils whilst catering for an increase in pupil numbers in the future.
Ambergate has drawn up exciting plans for a new, two storey block extension. It will include eight new classrooms, as well as a dining hall and kitchen extension.

The current school canteen is too small to accommodate everyone and was originally built in the 70’s to cater for 55 pupils. Ambergate currently has 141 pupils on role. The new building will be built to the left side of the school on the playground (the playground will then be extended following the build).
The work is subject to planning permission but we are hoping for the new block to be ready by September 2018.
Senior Principal, James Ellis, said: “The application was submitted because of an expansion in school numbers.
“The new block will provide excellent classroom facilities for our pupils, along with new toilets and extensions to the kitchen and sports hall. We’re hoping to open the new building in a year’s time”
The current mobile classrooms on the Ambergate field will eventually be removed.
