  • Description

    La Retraite School was founded in 1880 and year on year the building has been developed to provide the most up-todateeducational facilities. A new Sports Hall in 2010 was followed by the creation of additional classrooms, another ICT teaching room and three new offices. The addition of a new Library and two new classrooms added further and the latest development plans involve a new Performing Arts Block for music, drama and dance.

    Avonline Flooring was appointed to supply and install flooring in one of the new buildings, working to tight timescales within the school holidays. During construction work the only access to the building was on foot so all materials had to be unloaded remotely and carried onto the school site.

  • Finishes
