Ancaster Senior / Fessenden Elementary School Campus
As part of the Ancaster Accommodation Review, the Board of Trustees approved the closure of Fessenden and Queen’s Rangers, pending Ministry of Education funding for two new JK-8 elementary schools on the CH Bray and Rousseau sites, as well as an addition at Ancaster Senior.
In March of this year, HWDSB received Ministry of Education funding for a $3,702,489 addition to Ancaster Senior. The addition is currently in for Site Plan Approval and the intention is to have the addition complete for September 2019.
Bernie Custis Secondary School Transition Committee
HWDSB’s new Bernie Custis Secondary School will be located at 1055 King Street East (former Scott Park Secondary School site). This beautifully designed secondary school will be constructed to meet the needs of students while complementing in the adjacent Tim Hortons Field, Jimmy Thompson pool and the new City of Hamilton Bernie Morelli Recreation Centre. The downtown location allows for a flexible design. It will accommodate 1,250 pupils in approximately 160,000 square foot secondary school with surrounding amenities. The preliminary site design includes a three-storey secondary school, green space and a unique partnership with the City of Hamilton that provides state-of-the-art physical education opportunities for our students.
