Following my question “What progress has been made towards a STEM block for QEII School?” in Tynwald 19th July the following was confirmed.

The Department is in the early stages of considering future development options for the Queen Elizabeth II High School to increase capacity to meet a roll which is expected to rise in the short to medium term, following the extensive residential development in the town and also addressing existing suitability issues across the school.

The Department is to make an initial provision for such future development as part of the forthcoming 2017-18 Budget process and will be looking at confirming the need and at developing a feasibility study over the balance of this financial year to support a business case.

…….. the development may well take the form of a new STEM block –which is a science, technology, engineering and maths block …..
