PHASE I: 2019-2024 SPORTS PAVILION
The School currently hosts, on average, over 15 fixtures per week across both Prep and Senior Schools. This is in addition to a vast array of clubs and societies which use the facilities during holiday periods and which generate income when the School is on holiday. Currently, these fixtures and external lets are serviced by very old and tired changing rooms at the back of the School (which, in all likelihood, have not altered much since you were here!).
The hope is to move the changing rooms out of the School and into a purpose built building next to the rugby and hockey pitches. This would not only free up space in the existing building for much-needed pastoral space, but it will also provide a viewing area and hospitality hub from which to watch the matches going on. For those who remember the Barney wind that blows, a smart and warm viewing platform from which to watch boys and girls play simultaneously, as well as modern and up to date changing facilities, will significantly increase the quality of provision for our pupils, our visitors and our supporters. This will also provide a potentially lucrative conference and hospitality space to hire out when not in use for School purposes.
The projected cost of this project is circa £1.2 million.
