  • The Big Build
    The Big Build

    We would like to thank everyone in the school and local community for their patience and support during our extended period of building work.   The new Sixth Form Centre with its separate entrance atrium, ICT suite, lecture theatre and common room is now in use along with the new classroom bases, one of which is our Healthy Living studio.   As the first stage of the Big Build draws to a close, from the Healthy Pupils Capital Fund we have been awarded funding to improve our swimming pool facilities – this project will include an extended 25m indoor swimming pool with changing rooms.  We are also tremendously fortunate, through our own fundraising and the generous support of parents and the PTFA, to be able to provide an additional, and much needed multi-functional hall which will incorporate the new swimming pool.  We are absolutely delighted that our students will be rewarded with first class facilities to match their outstanding achievements.
