De La Salle School and Language College is a mixed Catholic comprehensive school for 11-16 year-olds.
A new wing will link existing parts of the school and will provide new areas for exhibitions and displays, design and technology, art and a library. There will also be a new kitchen and dining room.
Most of the existing areas of the school will be refurbished, including an upgrade to the existing hall, the administration area, the modern foreign languages department, the humanities section and the PE changing rooms, which will also benefit from a new classroom. Externally, there will be a new landscaped student entrance plaza and additional car parking.
The school will be one of the first in Essex to be supported by Apple hardware and software so that each student will have access to the school’s ICT systems.
