St Anne’s School and Sixth form College at Welton, East Yorkshire, caters for children and young adults between the ages of two and 19 with severe and complex needs.

It is only one of three special schools within the East Riding of Yorkshire. Due to an ever increasing demand for student places and limited space, St Anne’s approached Transwaste Ltd and asked if we could help by assisting them in providing a modular building for use as a meeting and training room, to ease their demand for space and facilities.

New Classroom at St Annes

With the help of a local building design consultant, Transwaste Ltd sourced a building and with help from Humberside Aggregates have donated the building to St Anne’s.

A local portable and modular building company supplied the building and as a gesture to St Anne’s they modified it by adding a toilet and a small kitchen area, they also helped to position and install the building at the Welton site.

Hobson and Porter, a local award winning construction company, connected all the utilities. Richard Hunt, Hobson & Porter business development manager stated “We were more than happy to work with Transwaste Ltd in providing a real benefit to St. Anne’s School. It’s nice to see companies pull together to make a positive difference to the communities in which we work.”

Transwaste are an award winning local waste management company and are now the largest locally based waste management company in East Yorkshire. They realise the importance in helping the local community and saw the provision of a modular building to St Anne’s as a perfect opportunity to demonstrate that.

Transwaste offer the complete package to deal with waste products efficiently and responsibly, from recycling solutions and waste disposal to skip and commercial bin hire and provision aggregates.

Humberside Aggregates are suppliers of sand, gravel, limestone and topsoil, based at North Cave in East Yorkshire and are further helping the community by creating an award winning nature reserve.

Head teacher of St Anne’s School and Sixth Form College Lesley Davis said “This is a very generous donation and is very much appreciated. On behalf of the school I would like to thank all the contractors involved; this tremendous modular building will ensure the school has a discrete meeting and training room. Finally it is heart-warming to be part of such a very supportive community”.
