Prior's Field September 2018

Head thrilled at planning consent for Sciences and Arts centre

Published Thursday 23rd of April 2015 12:03:30 PM

Planning has been granted for a combined Music, Science and Technology centre at Prior�s Field, to be created as an extension on the site of the existing Music centre.

At a time when schools nationally are facing pressure to cut creative and performing arts, Prior�s Field is reinforcing the importance of these subjects in the broad, balanced education it provides. 40% of its pupils take individual instrumental lessons, enabling them to play in school concerts and bands: this planning consent will provide for 8 new practice rooms, theory classrooms, a recording studio and an 80 seat, fully acoustic recital hall.

Growth in the demand to study science subjects at both GCSE and A Level at Prior�s Field bucks the national trend, which reflects a decline among girls taking Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. This new teaching centre will enhance existing facilities in these areas.

Head Julie Roseblade commented, �We are absolutely thrilled. This new building will make a significant difference and will support our ambition to provide the best possible teaching and learning environment for our girls and staff.�

Sixth Formers at the school have been winners at the University of Surrey�s Best Sixth Form Chemist of the Year event for seven consecutive years and go on to a wide range of top universities, including Oxbridge, to study courses as varied as medicine, philosophy, law and music.

To tour Prior�s Field, join our open day on Friday 1 May, 10.30am to 12.30pm or call Admissions on 01483 810551 to arrange an individual visit.
