The School Rebuilding Programme

By Luke Rogers


The School Rebuilding Programme was announced in June 2020 by then Prime Minister Boris Johnson. As we know, a lot has gone on over the past couple of years, and the tenants of 10 Downing Street have changed a couple of times. Nevertheless, since the announcement, 161 schools have been confirmed to be getting much-needed support with rebuilding and refurbishment projects.

What is it?

The school rebuilding programme carries out major rebuilding and refurbishment projects at school and sixth-form college buildings across England, with buildings prioritised according to their condition. 

Announcements so far

The government announced the first 50 schools in the programme in February 2021, the second set of 50 schools in July 2021, and the most recent set of 61 schools in July 2022. The original commitment was to help rebuild 500 schools across the country over ten years.

Here is an excellent article from October showing the real impact this support has on schools across the country.

What can you do?

As far as we can tell, submissions, for now, are paused unless you fall into urgent criteria. Look at the page below with many significant points, including criteria, how to nominate, submit a nomination, and help.

What can Very PC do to help?

A government official made a statement in July 2022 explaining, “In 2022 to 2023, we expect to prioritise up to 300 schools in total”. This means we can expect up to another 139 schools to be announced by the end of 2023.

If you are one of the schools already receiving the much-needed help, we are here to support you. We can offer expert advice and supply essential education software, hardware, and IT infrastructure to help level up your IT block and equipment (and we can brand it too).
