Fortem to create new post-16 common room at Ashgate Croft School

“The work pledged by Fortem to refurbish our common room will increase opportunities and improve the life skills of our students for years to come, this will truly change the learning environment and be a legacy in our school for generations.”

Tom Nicholson, Quantity Surveyor from Fortem, said: “We’re delighted that we have the opportunity to support Ashgate Croft School in refurbishing their ‘Pod’. We’re really looking forward to getting started, and seeing what a positive difference it will have to both the staff and students of the school.

“It’s extremely satisfying knowing that we can assist in preparing and improving the life skills of young adults for life outside school, and providing them with a safe environment to do this in.”

Since 2017, when Fortem began working in Chesterfield, their social value investment has been £3,044. This has included work across five customer centred projects and offering work experience to local young people.
