The community at Corran Integrated Primary School is delighted that the contract for their new build has been signed, meaning that work on site should begin before the end of this month (June 2017).
The school, in Larne, has been marking its 25th anniversary throughout this academic year and this latest step towards a new building is a fitting culmination of the celebrations.
The work is due to be completed by summer 2018 and will include top-of-the-range technology as well as interactive outdoor spaces, and the parking and access needed for parents.
A spokesperson for the school said
“Everyone at Corran is very excited about the new development and looking forward to moving into a new home in September next year. We would also like to thank the IEF for supporting a marketing campaign to promote the creative and inspiring learning environment our school offers to the local community.”
The new location for Corran IPS is less than half a mile from the current site and continues to offer views over the Antrim Hills and the coast. “Corran” means crescent-shaped and the curved new building is designed to reflect this.
