Liverpool Schools Investment Programme

Liverpool Schools Investment Programme

The Liverpool Schools Investment Programme (LSIP) was created by the Mayor of Liverpool in 2010 when the government scrapped Building Schools for the Future.

With £180m and over an eight year period, more than 14,000 pupils and students directly benefited from LSIP which transformed 22 of the city’s primary and secondary schools into the new, modern learning environments that Liverpool's children and young people deserve. The programme:

  • Generated £45m from the sale of old and vacant school sites.
  • Completed 15 new schools, three new builds and four extensions or new blocks. 
  • Created 10 new housing sites with a total of 650 new homes, all of which generated council tax to fund essential services. 
  • Spent 62% of project funds with Liverpool firms.
  • Created 2,000 construction jobs and 200 apprenticeships.
