Builders chip in for academy building


The Delamere Church of England Academy has recently completed a £1.1 million redevelopment of the school building and Cheshire builder Wainhomes has supported the initiative by donating over £23,000 to the school, part of a £47,000 overall investment by the company.

The Academy offers primary school places for 168 children and was classed as outstanding in its last Ofsted inspection. It is a popular choice for parents living in the Cheshire West catchment area.

Stephen Docking, Head Teacher said: “We are very grateful for the support provided by Wainhomes, it’s great to see a local company backing a local school. The money gifted to us by Wainhomes will ensure that our children will continue to achieve and enjoy even greater learning opportunities.”

Sharon Wood, Sales Director said: “We are keen to support local community initiatives in the areas where we build new homes. We are currently selling four and five bedroom executive homes, two bedroom apartments and three bedroom mews homes at our Four Oaks development at Oakmere and it’s proving a popular address.

“The Academy is close to Four Oaks and we have developed good relationships with the school during our time in the area. We were happy to play our part in the redevelopment of the Academy which includes an extension for a new school hall and new classrooms.”

Wainhomes will be providing a further donation of just over £23,000 to the school later this year. This latest instalment will support improvements to the school’s ICT infrastructure as it upgrades and overhaul’s technology across the Academy.
