R G Carter has made good progress on the new SEN ASD (special educational needs, autism spectrum disorder) Duke of Lancaster School in Fakenham, with the steel frame now in place. To demonstrate this work to date, Alex Mackay (centre) from the R G Carter team at Drayton, took new Headteacher Rob Speck (right) and CEO of the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Academies Trust (SENDAT), Lawrence Chapman (left), on a tour of the building.

The new facility will provide a modern specialist learning environment for up to 100 children and young people, aged between 5 and 16, with autism and complex communication and interaction needs.

Next steps on the development includes work on the mono-pitch roofing, brickwork and the start of internal partitioning works, with completion of school expected in Winter 2021.

This new bespoke school is being delivered for Norfolk County Council as part of its £120 million programme to transform special education.
