My name is Mrs. Sue Dickie and I work as School Liaison Adviser for both  Coleshill Heath and Fordbridge Primary Schools.

My role requires that I act as a link between the Local Authority, the architects and the schools as part of the 'Primary Programme' for new builds.

I intend to use this section of the Coleshill Heath website to keep you informed of news and events relating to the building of the new Coleshill Heath School.

An overview of the recent and forthcoming events:

  • Planning permission for the building of the new school was granted in May this year.   
  • Invitations of interest were invited from contractors wishing to build the school.
  • A shortlist of contractors was drawn up.
  • Tender documents have been distributed to contractors on the shortlist.
  • Contractors to return costs for building the school by the end of October.
  • Contract to be awarded to the successful builder in November.
  • Work to begin on site at the beginning of 2014.

There has been recent work taking place on the former Alcott Hall site. The former base and foundations  of the old school have been dug up, along with other areas. The rubble created by this work will remain on site to be used as part of the foundations for the new building.

 If you have questions or queries, I can be contacted via the School Office,

or by e-mail on :-


Thank you.
