Independent school set to take on drainage board office


Plans have been submitted to transform a former drainage board office in Boston into an independent school.

Bridge House wants to take on the ex Black Sluice Internal Drainage Board offices in Carlton Road.

The building, vacant for more than 18 months, will be open from 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday in terms times and for children of working families in the holiday ‘Kick It’ programme.

It will act as a secondary building for Bridge House, with five staff employed there.

The plans state: “Such type of school deals with the behavioural attitude and concentration of teenagers who have been excluded or have not attended the normal educational system and therefore need help and guidance in meeting their individual requirements in preparing them for future employment.

“Such is the present success of the school over recent years the high level of recommendation has resulted in a considerable intake, which necessitates additional accomodatiuon that is located within a reasonable distance from the existing school.”
