Seven Stars Primary School

Conlon Construction has won the Department for Education contract to build a sustainable primary school in Leyland.

The Bamber Bridge-based firm will begin work this summer on Seven Stars Primary School on Peacock Hall Road.

Originally opened more than 50 years ago, the school is set to be fully demolished and rebuilt.

The new plans include 10 classrooms within a part-two-storey, part-single-storey primary school, plus parking, landscaping and a new multi-use games area. The development will improve both the learning environment and the school's environmental credentials. 

The school will be among the first 50 net zero carbon schools, in line with the Department for Education’s recent codes. Among the green initiatives built into the design are grass roofs, solar energy, high performance thermal insulation, passive ventilation solutions, air source heat pumps and no dependency on fossil fuels for heating or hot water. 

The build will be carried out in two phases, and the school will remain operational throughout the course of the project, which is due to complete in late 2024.

Darren Lee, commercial director at Conlon Construction, said: “Meeting the net zero carbon in operation requirements is no mean feat, but we’re thrilled by the challenge and will be calling on our team’s extensive school building experience.

"We’re using innovative techniques and leading technology to create a learning hub that will not only support youngsters at Seven Stars Primary School to thrive in their education, but also protect the environment for the sake of their futures."
