Nearly £1 million is set to be invested to ensure a world class performing arts and music facility will be situated in Worcester.
It’s been announced that £750,000 will be plowed into the facility, which will include a bell tower atop its entrance, designed by One Creative Environments, as the facility aims to combine music, drama, dance and vocational studies.
Neil Morris, headteacher of Christopher Whitehead Language College and Sixth Form, said: “This entire performing arts centre will make an incredible difference to our students and the breadth of what we can offer through the curriculum.
“This is now a great cultural and educational opportunity to become the first state school to have a non-intrusive, sound proofed, beautiful bell tower and I really appreciate the enthusiasm and commitment shown by private investors to date.”
Mark Martin, director of One Creative Environments, added: “We are delighted with the response from the private sector. We are developing sponsorship options, however, this investment has been secured even before the formal funding process has begun which is great news.
“As a company, we have attended MIPIM, Cannes and its London counterpart, MIPIM UK, for many years and seen great success in securing investment for clients and work for our integrated building design company.”
“This is another wonderful educational project for One to be involved in.”
