New Build & Refurbishment Project


In common with many Gloucestershire schools in recent years, Pate’s has suffered from an increasing gap in education funding that has put huge pressure on our budget. As a consequence, in 2016 the school took the decision to increase Year 7 pupil numbers to generate additional income. In order to accommodate this growth in pupil numbers, we submitted a bid to the Education and Skills Funding Agency to expand and develop the campus and in April 2017, were granted funds of almost £3m to allow us to do this.
