Pupils at Golborne High will benefit from upgraded changing rooms, thanks to a partnership with their current neighbours, Taylor Wimpey.
The three year partnership sees the housebuilder, who are currently on site at the Rothwells Farm development next to the high school, pledge £13,000 a year to cover the cost of the school’s new changing rooms to ensure that they can keep up with the demands of the school’s extra-curricular activity timetable.
Alison Gormally, headteacher, at Golborne High School, comments: “We know what a positive impact physical exercise can have on both mental and physical health, which is why we’re focused on providing a breadth of sporting activities so every student can find something that suits them.
“With Rothwells Farm so close to the school it seemed like a natural partnership and we could not be more grateful to be working with Taylor Wimpey.
“It will make a real difference to the pupils and hopefully encourage more of them to come down and get active in our after-school sessions.”
Chloe Dunn, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, concludes: “We’re always happy to partner with such great causes in the community and know how important it is for children to get and stay active. Hopefully having lovely new changing rooms will encourage more pupils to attend after school sessions.
“We look forward to seeing the children in the community and those that live at Rothwells Farm benefitting from this partnership.”
