As of the middle of October, the construction of the two new academies has advanced rapidly, so that both will open at the start of September 2020.
This photo ( left) shows the completed steel work of Bearsted Primary Academy with a view from Snowfields Academy across what will be the horticultural area for the special school.
The next photo (right) is of the first floor level of Snowfields Academy where the concrete floor slabs have been laid. This process is now taking place through the rest of the building. It planned that the external brick and stone work will begin at the start of November.
At the same time the contractors are also developing the outside spaces. All of the necessary storm drainage capacity has been finished. The creation of sports pitches (below) have also been finished and are now ready for seeding.
