Triton Construction (@Triton_ltd) has completed the transformation of vacant office premises in Derby to provide a temporary new school for St Mary’s Catholic Voluntary Academy following a devastating arson attack.

The deliberate fire destroyed the primary school building in Darley Abbey last October and St Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi Academy Trust undertook a procurement process to assemble a team able to replace the teaching facility as soon as possible with a medium-term solution until a new school could be built.

Along with the consulting team which included GNA Surveyors and CBP Architects, Triton managed to renovate three floors at St James House off Mansfield Road in Derby to deliver new classrooms, toilets, canteen facilities and play space for 350 children in just 15 weeks from start to finish.

Ian Chapman, Construction Director at Triton Construction, said,

“We are delighted to complete this project to allow St Mary’s to prepare for and resume teaching after the Easter break. This really was a ‘Challenge Anneka’ style rescue project where value engineering played a significant part in being able to deliver a speedy solution with budget restrictions.

“The project involved the stripping out and complete refurbishment of the existing office layout on the first, second and third floors, comprising 22,500 sq ft.   We also delivered a separate entrance way, new car parking and external play areas with security fencing.  The school’s ability to respond quickly and make speedy decisions, allowed us to complete the project in just 15 weeks, despite working in consideration of existing occupiers in the building.”

Amanda Greaves, Executive Head Teacher at St Mary’s Catholic Voluntary Academy, said,

“We are looking forward to bringing our school community back together in one building and we would like to thank Triton Construction and associates for helping to make this move a reality. In an unprecedented short space of time, St James' House has been transformed into a wonderful learning environment which will help us to continue giving our children the very best Catholic education. It has been a pleasure working alongside Triton and their associates to create a learning environment in an unorthodox setting enabling our staff to maintain their high standards whilst offering high levels of pastoral care through the numerous break spaces developed with supporting children in mind. I am truly grateful for the hard work which has gone into this project and now can't wait for the whole school to be together under one roof once again."

Triton Construction has extensive experience in all areas of the education sector with recent projects including a £6 million refurbishment and new-build teaching facilities at Astrea Academy Woodfield in Doncaster, a £3.5 million extension for Chorlton Park Primary School in Manchester, a £1.95 million extension to Bolton Muslim Girls School, a £2 million extension block for Penistone Grammar School in Barnsley, and a new £1.75 million classroom block extension for Sharples School in Bolton.

In the last few years Triton has seen a significant increase in work across the education sector.Over the last 12 months it has completed 9 school extension or upgrade projects valued at over £30 million with 3 ongoing.

Triton’s learning sector portfolio also includes a new library and further refurbishments for Leeds College of Music, a £2.3 million High Needs Vocational Centre for Shipley College, a £3.5 million science block and state of the art learning link for Bradford Grammar School and a £4 million transformation of a derelict building to house Norfolk Park Special School in Sheffield.

We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In Jan 2021, FE News had over 173,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector, putting us in the top 2,000 websites in the UK.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
