Galliford Try has won the first batch of schools in Hull and East Riding under the priority schools building programme, worth £35.7m.

The batch represents Galliford Try’s first success since its appointment to the Education Funding Agency’s new main contractor framework in November 2013.

The Hull and East Riding batch includes the £18.6m construction of Hessle High School and Sixth Form College, as well as new buildings for Eastfield, Francis Askew, Wold and Ainthorpe Primary Schools in the region.

Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: “We are delighted to have secured our first success since our appointment to the EFA’s main contractor framework last year.

“Education remains a key sector for our construction business and we look forward to working with the EFA and the schools in the Hull and East Riding batch to produce the high quality buildings and facilities their pupils deserve.”
