Tilbury Douglas has completed the construction of Prospect House SEND school (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) in Blackley, Manchester
Prospect House SEND school features a new one-storey building, external play areas, and drop off and car parking facilities. A range of therapy and sensory spaces and a hydrotherapy pool is also included.
The school has been commissioned by the Department for Education and provides places for 100 pupils, aged from three to 11, of which 10 will be early-years places.
The pupils have a range of special educational needs, including severe learning difficulties (SLD), profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) and autism. Some also have significant medical needs, physical disabilities or sensory impairment.
“An outstanding learning environment to help the students thrive”
Phil Shaw, divisional director (North West) for Tilbury Douglas, shared: “We’re delighted to have completed Prospect House and provide exceptional facilities for 100 students with special educational needs and disabilities. The new facilities will provide an outstanding learning environment to help the students thrive.”
Tilbury Douglas delivered a Social Value Return on Investment of over £4m – achieved through activities including burying a time capsule with some of the students and volunteering at a neighbouring nursing home.
A ‘meet the buyer’ event was also hosted and led to 95% of orders being from local suppliers – 94% of whom were SMEs.
