Project details

The Wolverhampton Schools project is a redevelopment of the former Tarmac headquarters site in Wolverhampton from redundant commercial premises to a modern educational site. It includes a significant refurbishment of some of the existing buildings, construction of new facilities, demolitions and external works.

Two free schools are on the site - The British Sikh School and Wolverhampton Vocational Training Centre. The British Sikh School is a coeducational inclusive secondary school for 840 pupils based upon the Sikh ethos, and the Vocational Training Centre is a special school for young people aged 16 and over which prepares them for adulthood and helps them to learn essential skills to work and live as independently as possible.
