The project is scheduled to begin early this year and will include many desirable features

Students at Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital will be enjoying new state of the art sports facilities at the school’s sports ground in the new academic year.

Planning permission was granted last term for the extensive redevelopment of the site. The new facilities will include a 3G artificial surface for rugby and football, sand-dressed artificial surface for hockey and tennis as well as tarmac surfaces for netball and tennis.

Stephen Holliday, headmaster at QEH, said “Everyone at QEH is delighted with this decision. We will be investing £2.7m in the project, which is scheduled to begin in early 2019, with a completion date of 1 September 2019 in time for the new academic year. The new facilities will enhance our sport provision and enable us to offer a wider breadth of sport at all levels, including for our sixth form girls.”

Final plans for the Failand redevelopment can be viewed on the school’s website at or by visiting the school at the next open morning, on Friday 8 March.
