Museum to Save Old Grammar School
After years of neglect plans for the Old Grammar School took two steps forward this past month.
It has been announced that the Old Grammar School will be transformed into an exhibition, education and event space. Behind the plan is Coventry Transport Museum. Planned work includes replacement of the floor in the main hall of the building and a small extension, allowing disabled access. The main door onto Hales Street would also be replaced while the medieval choir stalls will be maintained.
The first sucessful step was the approval of planning permission and listed building consent for the development. The second step was the awarding of a major grant for the refurbishment. A portion of the £4.6 million fund will also go towards improving galleries at the transport museum with the rest to develop the Old Grammar School building for exhibition, education and event use. Work is expected to be completed by April 2015.
