The project reached completion in the early hours of the first day of the autumn term 2016 with staff working right up to the last moment to make sure that everything was in place for the Pre-Prep children which included almost seventy new pupils. This is a historic day in the history of the school with both parts of the school being based on the same site for the first time in more than forty years.
The new school provides a spacious and stunning educational environment and the children were very excited to see their new surroundings and classrooms. The design is very dynamic and children will thoroughly enjoy being part of such an exciting and innovative new school. Everyone has worked tirelessly to achieve the completion of the building in the given time and we have been granted full handover at this stage which means that all compliance and building controls guidelines have been met.
Many thanks to Mrs Chong for her commitment to the project over the last two years. She has given a huge amount of time and effort, working closely with the project team to ensure that the school's ideas and requirements have been met, in addition to her day to day role as Head of Pre-Prep. She has been on call throughout the summer and and we are very appreciative of her enthusiasm, energy and dedication to the school, parents and the children in ensuring that the new build was completed on time.
Thanks also go to the many other staff at the school have also worked incredibly hard over the remaining weeks of the holidays to ensure everything was as ready as possible for the first day of term. We have been very fortunate to have a professional, diligent and conscientious construction team delivering the project and whilst there will be some final finishing over the next few weeks, this will not impact on the children.
