Vinci lands £25m Jewish schools contract

Vinci Construction UK will this month start building the new King David High School, Primary School and Kindergarten in Liverpool.

The schools will be contained in a single building on the current high school site. The building will also host the Harold House Jewish Community & Youth Centre.

The work is part of Liverpool's £500m Building Schools, Skills, Success scheme, with additional funding provided by the King David Foundation.

The school, which is currently in a 1950s building with small classrooms and narrow corridors, will form part of a central campus.
