AN MP is urging schools to enter an £80,000 classroom giveaway competition.
A timber-clad 30-pupil classroom is being given away by Clearspace Buildings in conjunction with the leading education magazine and website TES.
Caroline Nokes, pictured, MP for Romsey and Southampton North, said: “Local schools have a good track record in this competition, with Chamberlayne College in Southampton being last year’s winner.”
This is the second time Clearspace and TES have partnered to donate a classroom.
This year, Clearspace is offering the winning school the choice of the standalone permanent single classroom or an £80,000 contribution to a rooftop extension.
The option of the financial contribution to a rooftop extension this year opens the competition up to schools that do not have the ground space to construct a standalone building.
The competition, which is open to all UK primary, secondary and special schools, can be entered online at tesconnect.com/building.
Entrants must explain, in no more than 300 words, why they deserve to win the new learning space.
They have until 16 February to submit their entries.
