Camborne, Redruth and Hayle’s MP George Eustice has written congratulating Pool Academy on receiving thousands of pounds in funding.
The Cornish secondary school was successful in winning a sum of money from the Condition Improvement Fund for ‘future projects and maintenance’.
Kevin Murphy, Site Manager at Pool Academy, has revealed the money will go towards new fire doors and improving the school roof.
He said the Academy was built in the 1970s so the improvements were welcome. It is hoped work will start in the Summer.
Any unspent money will be used to help future landscaping projects.
In Mr Eustice’s letter to Pool Academy he wrote: “I am writing to congratulate Pool Academy on your receipt of the Condition Improvement Fund for the school’s future projects and maintenance.”
He added that he looked forward to hearing updates.
Clive Bramley, Chair of Governors at Pool Academy, said: “We were delighted to have been chosen to receive money from the fund. We are looking forward to spending it on improvements to the Academy’s building and grounds.
“We thank Mr Eustice for his interest and will look forward to speaking to him in the future.”
