They added George F. White appointed contractor Tom Willoughby, on behalf of the school, to construct the first phase on time and on budget.

Hunter Hardy, head of the architectural team, said: “While the need for the classroom extension was immediate, the planning and architectural team wanted to understand how this fitted in with the school’s long-term aims and aspirations.

“As such, we have worked very closely with Cundall Manor to create a ten-year plan, of which the first major phase - the four new classrooms - is complete.

Sir Thomas Ingilby, chair of governors at Cundall Manor, based near Thirsk, North Yorkshire, added: “The new classrooms are a huge investment for our pupils, to provide them with the very best of facilities both now, and in the future.

“It is also testament to the dedication of our governors and staff, who have worked tirelessly to get our development programme off to a great start with the new learning facilities.”

George F. White has offices across County Durham and North Yorkshire, including bases in Barnard Castle and Bedale.
