Plantsbrook School was completely rebuilt at an overall cost of £20m as part of a private funding initiative. The building comprised of a new, 3 storey teaching block housing bespoke classrooms and studios for subjects such as science, food tech, computing, dance, design and general studies. It also incorporated a dining hall, kitchen and main hall. A new sports hall is still to be completed which will bring the overall build size to 11,700 square metres.
