St Johns C of E Primary School, Blackpool

We are pleased to have successfully secured the contract for the new build of St Johns CE Primary School.  A £3.7 million contract with the Blackburn Diocese to build the new Town Centre three-storey Primary School is now taking place on Church Street in Blackpool.

Even in its early stages the project has recieved a lot of media attention and has recently been rated as the ‘best unbuilt community building’ at the Manchester Society Design Awards.

During site inspections earlier this year it was also found that the original school buildings still existed.  The earliest buildings on site date from 1817, making them possibly the oldest extant buildings in Blackpool Town Centre.

The new Primary School will have the capacity to teach over 200 pupils and is due to be open in June 2009.
