New sixth form block planned for school
PLANS have been submitted to build a new sixth form block at Clevedon Community School.
A planning application has been submitted to North Somerset Council to put a new single-storey prefabricated building on the site of the former science block at the rear of the school.
The new block will feature two large rooms as well as a number of smaller rooms and will provide private study and research areas, a new common room and space for lectures to be held.
Currently the sixth form, which has 220 students on roll, is based within the main school in two classrooms which were refurbished to provide a common room and study space.

Funding for the new building, costing around £275,000 has come via a Government Education Funding Grant of £250,000. The rest of the money for the project has been earmarked by the school.
Clevedon Community School, which converted to an academy in February, has seen its sixth form grow over the past few years. In 2007 there were just 130 students on roll compared to the current intake of 220.
When in place, the sixth form will relocate to the new block and the current classrooms they occupy in the main school building will be freed up as additional study space for students.
Clevedon Community School head John Wells said: "We need these extra facilities to cope with the growth within the sixth form. We currently do not have enough space for our sixth form students and they are using two rooms within the main school. This new building will give them private study and research areas and a common room as well as conference facilities.
"It is a bespoke building for our sixth form students. The students have been involved with the design and are excited about having a space they can truly call their own."
