The batch of Priority School Building Programme (PSBP) schools comprises eight primary schools and one secondary school.

The Education Funding Agency said it had chosen Bowmer & Kirkland for the batch of schools, with the firm beating Galliford Try to the job.

The win for Bowmer & Kirkland comes after the firm bagged a £28m batch of priority schools in Derby last month, when it also saw off competition from Galliford Try.

The schools came to market through the capital-funded element of the PSBP.

All nine schools are located in the Leicester and Nottingham area.

The schools included in the East Midlands capital batch are:

  • Brierley Forest Primary School
  • Forest Lodge Primary School
  • Glenbrook Primary School
  • John Davies Primary School
  • Leamington Academy
  • Lynncroft Primary
  • Springfield Primary School
