Glossop High School is set to receive a $17.2 million redevelopment funding boost to bring together its two campuses and create capacity to house 800 Year 7 to 12 students.
The school currently operates between two campuses located approximately 10 kilometres apart, with the middle school campus located in Glossop offering Years 8 to 10 and the senior campus in Berri offering Years 11 and 12.
The investment means the Berri campus will be expanded to accommodate all high school year levels on to the one site, including Year 7s for the first time.
The project will also bring a host of other benefits to students and staff such as access to shared facilities that include the new STEM space and upgraded Home Economics, Performing Arts and Tech Studies areas.
Students will also have access to the newly upgraded Berri Barmera council’s playing fields and sports complex.
The redevelopment will create a unified campus administration, staff facilities and student services for the entire school, reducing ongoing maintenance costs.
It is anticipated the project will be completed in time for the 2022 school year.
