Cardinal Wiseman School now boasts one of the best football facilities in the country thanks to their recent collaboration with velocity Sports Ltd.
Having been successful in a two-stage tender process, Velocity were appointed early in 2017 to assist the school by undertaking site surveys, detailed design, obtaining planning permission and clearing planning conditions.
Once this had been achieved the construction work began.
Velocity transformed a poor quality natural grass pitch and redundant grass area into a superb new FIFA Quality 3G surface with associated perimeter fencing and floodlighting as well as creating a natural grass picnic area with the site won topsoil.
The facility was handed over within 12 weeks and the school were able to have first use following the October half term, 2 weeks ahead of schedule.

"The staff and students could not be happier and grateful to be using such a wonderful new facility, it is a major addition to the delivery of the PE curriculum. Velocity would always be recommended for their professional approach, ability to adapt to site matters and changes during the period of construction – the site was always kept in pristine condition, and the delivery of the final product was first class."
