Redevelopment of Science Department at the St Marylebone CE School: This application is for £100,000 from the Marylebone CIL portion to fund the complete redevelopment of the school’s science department (consisting of six laboratories). The current facilities are outdated, cramped and no longer fit for teaching the contemporary science curriculum. The redevelopment will cost a total of £300,000; £25,000 has come from the Parent-Teacher Association, £75,000 from WCC Department Budget and a further £100,000 from the Wolfson Foundation. The project is eligible for Neighbourhood CIL funding as Education Facilities are recognised as fundable infrastructure.
