Description: Building Schools for the Future (BSF) was conceived as a programme to rebuild or refurbish every secondary school in England. Projects were prioritised not according to the maintenance needs of schools buildings but according to the levels of deprivation and educational attainment in each area. It was originally announced that the programme would be complete by 2015; however this was later extended to 2023. The original estimated cost of the programme was £45 billion but this had risen to £52-55 billion shortly before the cancellation of the programme. Although originally planned as a 15–20 year programme, it was announced by the Secretary of State for Education on 5 July 2010 that only projects that had achieved OBC approval by 1 January 2010 would continue. Since the decision was taken to allow only those projects beyond OBC by 1 January 2010 to continue, an exercise was undertaken in late 2010 to identify savings from the remaining programme. C.£250m was duly identified as efficiencies.
