Kirkleatham Hall School provides support to pupils between the ages of two and 19 who have a wide range of learning difficulties.
Tolent is working on a £2m extension to Kirkleatham Hall School to aid students requiring specialist supoort across the area. The construction works to extend and remodel the existing site will create space for 12 new pupils, further removing the need for students and families to travel outside of the Borough to attend school. The project has been funded by Redcar and Cleveland Council and the Department for Education.
The project is divided in two phases with the first phase of works including a single storey extension to provide two new classrooms and associated sensory and therapy rooms. The second phase involves construction of a new main entrance and reception area and extension to the main hall that will double in size to provide the school with enough flexibility to ensure all student needs are catered for. Corridors around the building will also be widened where possible to accommodate wheel and power chair users.
The new bespoke sensory hall, with rebound therapy and a range of multi-sensory equipment, will ensure students who thrive in this environment will be able to access these facilities more regularly throughout the week.
The scheme has been designed by Logic Architecture, Portland Consulting as civil and structural engineers and JH & Partners as mechanical and electrical engineers.
