Katherine Warrington School

Project Overview

Service: Earthworks
Project: Katherine Warrington School
Location: Harpenden
Client: Kier Construction
Value: £927,041

The Mick George Group was associated with the Earthworks on behalf of Kier Construction for the enabling works on a new multi-million-pound secondary school in Harpenden.

Harpenden Secondary Education Trust was the initiating body’ for the project and is made up of the Governors from the three existing schools in the area, after declaring that it wasn’t feasible or desirable for the current schools to expand any further to accommodate the increased demand experienced during the last decade.

Following a ‘comprehensive site search’ in 2014 the chosen ‘green-belt’ destination was eventually approved, and Hertfordshire County Council agreed to purchase the 42 acres (17 hectares) of farmland needed for the new school buildings, accompanying sports fields and other facilities.

Kier have incorporated a whole host of sophisticated environmental elements within the build to significantly improve energy consumption, not least through optimising the natural light attained by the building, LED lighting, roof-mounted photovoltaic solar panels, natural ventilation and thermal fabric insulation.

It is envisaged that Katherine Warrington School will not only deliver an academic education of the highest standard but an environment in which children can acquire the skills ready for a happy and productive life.

The schools name was selected by the Trust’ after the scientist who lived in Harpenden for 90 years and pioneered research into the beneficial impact of boron and boric acid on plant and bean fertility during her working life at Rothamsted Research.

Scheduled for completion in September 2019, the school will cater for 1150 pupils.
