An update regarding RAAC at Pershore High School

Friday, 1 September 2023


Re: Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC)

Dear Parent/Carer

I am writing to update you on the situation regarding RAAC at Pershore High School. 


We are aware that one temporary building currently housing our smaller drama teaching space and costume store may be of RAAC construction.  We are awaiting a detailed, specialist, survey which we hope will take place in the next few weeks.  As a precaution we have taken these rooms out of use and will timetable drama lessons in a different location.


The building in question is scheduled for removal as part of our rebuild and expansion project.  This is a very exciting development for the school and the DfE are in the process of contractor engagement for what will be a £22 million improvement for the school.  We anticipate that this work will start in the summer term of 2024.


As soon as I have further information regarding the potential RAAC building and the rebuild and expansion project I will update you.


I hope that you and your families have enjoyed an enjoyable summer break.  As a reminder, the start of term dates are as follows:


Monday, 4 September 2023

Staff Training Day – school closed to students

Tuesday, 5 September 2023

All students in Years 7, 8 and 12 only start

Wednesday, 6 September 2023

Students in Years 9, 10, 11 and 13 start


We look forward to welcoming all our new students and their families.


Best wishes
