ISG are working with West Sussex County Council to rebuild Woodlands Meed SEN College on its current playing field site. The new college building will deliver state of the art facilities for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities in West Sussex. Playing fields will be situated on the site of the old building.

This major project to build a new college at Woodlands Meed for the benefit of 100 children with special needs is progressing at pace. The new facilities will provide additional space for college students, will be more suitable for pupils with mobility issues, and have many new features including:

  • 12 classrooms and specialist areas for design and technology, music, science and food technology
  • more overall space
  • high-quality sporting facilities including all-weather pitches, a two-court sports hall, and accessible changing facilities
  • a new hydrotherapy pool
  • a host of new outside learning and play areas including classrooms, an outside gym, planting areas, and courtyard and amphitheatre space

Beginning on site at the end of last year, ISG has now completed the sheet piling work. Storm drainage works have begun which will safely control the runoff of surface water from the new college. The groundwork is continuing to prepare the site ahead of the main construction commencing in the summer.
