Senior Sixth Form Boarding House Opens September 2010

Centenary House, a 60 bed accommodation block, funded by the Army as part of work to upgrade the school's boarding accommodation, has opened and is now housing year 13 pupils. Each bedroom has en-suite facilities and students also have a large common room and laundry facility within the building. Attached to the new accommodation block is also a four bedroomed family property for the current housemaster and a one bedroom flat for the current deputy housemistress.

Principal Charles Johnson said:
"We are enormously excited by the opportunities which Centenary House will provide for our most senior pupils. We hope that with careful supervision of a dedicated sixth form housemaster and his team, our year 13 pupils will be better prepared academically and socially for their life after school"

The new accommodation has been built to meet high sustainability standards. It has an environmentally friendly sedum roof, rain water harvesting, solar collectors, bio-mass boiler and sun tubes. By making the building more efficient, these measures will help minimise the carbon footprint and ongoing running costs of the building.

The new building was named Centenary House to mark the schools centenary year in 2009 and was formally opened by Major General A L Meier CB OBE on the 10th September 2010.
