Work on £3 million learning centre underway at Wycliffe Prep
HEADTEACHER Adrian Palmer put on a hard hat and sat in a digger to mark the beginning of a £3 million development at Wycliffe Preparatory School in Stonehouse.
Work on the state-of-the-art learning centre for Year 7 and 8 pupils is now only a year away from completion.
The university-style, two-storey building will feature eight spacious classrooms, a well-equipped common room and three new staff offices.
When building work is finished in August 2014, pupils can take advantage of high-tech teaching resources which include touchscreen boards, iPads, and Apple iDesks.
Mr Palmer and his wife Julie visited the site recently and met Paul Morgan, site manager for EG Carter, the construction company which is building the new complex.
"We look forward to seeing this exciting new phase in the schools development take shape over the next 12 months," said Mr Palmer.
"The pupils will have an outstanding place to work, learn and enjoy during the crucial years of their prep school education."
Gillian Camm, chairman of the governors, announced the new development to thrilled parents, pupils and staff at the school’s speech day before the summer holidays.
"The Prep School is flourishing with happy children who are stretched, challenged and achieve beyond their expectations," said Mrs Camm.
"This new development is part of our vision to build on our successes, continue inspiring our pupils and lead the way in the region for teaching and learning."
The completed learning centre will be unveiled in late August next year ready for staff and pupils to move in at the beginning of the autumn term.
