The children of James Elliman Academy have been enjoying new classrooms and a new dining hall after a large extension of the school. The Academy was the first of many projects to be delivered as part of the Council’s programme dedicated to improving and extending existing school buildings and facilities in Slough.


Slough experienced an increase in its population from 2016 and with it a demand for more school places. Slough Borough Council commenced a multi-million pound investment in primary and secondary school buildings – to provide enough places for Slough’s current and future young people. Seven projects were delivered by Slough Urban Renewal (SUR).

The work at James Elliman involved an extension to the dining hall and a total of six new classrooms including five in a brand new block. There was also a new footpath installed and outdoor landscaping work. All work was completed before the children returned to school after the summer holidays in September 2017.
