A FRESH look has been unveiled at Middlewich High School ahead of the new academic year.

While students will be kitted out in the school’s new uniform, the building itself has undergone a makeover.

Winsford Guardian:

A new entrance will greet students when they return to lessons in September, with improved accessibility and security measures.

The old, poorly-insulated glazed link block has been demolished and a more energy efficient one has been built in its place.

In a post on Twitter, headteacher Heidi Thurland said: “Wow what an improvement!

Winsford Guardian:

“We have waited a long time for this – we are delighted with the improvements to our reception area.

“We are looking forward to welcoming you all back soon, we will be writing to you shortly to confirm plans for September.”

Middlewich High School secured planning permission for the new entrance last July.

Winsford Guardian:

In its application, the school said: “Middlewich High School is committed to ensuring that the facilities it provides and uses afford its pupils, parents, visitors and employees the opportunity to maximise their individual abilities and enjoy safe and, wherever possible, independent participation.

“The proposed development will not affect existing parking arrangements or pedestrian access.”
