St Lawrence School in Horncastle was procured through Pagabo’s Major Works Framework – and is part of Lincolnshire County Council’s £100 million SEND school investment programme. 

SEND means special education needs and disabilities. 

The original school, confirmed as end-of-life by condition surveys, will be demolished when the new one opens for the 2023-24 academic year.
