Site news: Another phase of the building work has come to an end. The following changes will take effect after Easter ...


  • The Library and the Reading centre will be closed to allow the transition of 40,000+ books to new Learning Resource Centre (LRC). The new LRC is due to be finished and open later in term 3.

  • The 3/F of the Vertical Extension will close at Easter (E6 - E15). Classes that have used these spaces will be relocated to the B rooms, P rooms and other locations.

  • The 2/F of the Vertical Extension remains open to students for most of May, but with no lessons taking place in these classrooms (E1 - E5).

  • To allow for the work to take place on the 3/F, access to the tennis courts will be limited to just the one staircase (nearest school front gate). The access will either be through the SSC or from the G/F


There have been a number of tutor groups relocated to new tutor bases. See summary Attached.


Lessons and tutor-times will commence in the new rooms from Monday the 28th of April.
