The new Sixth Form Centre has now begun to rise from the ground. The structural framework has been erected, services have been brought online and flooring on all levels has been established.

This video shows the work completed thus far, over a 60 day period prior to the Easter break.

Update - Build Progress Part 1

Site work for this project continues apace; the old buildings have now been completely removed and the foundations for this exciting new project have been laid.

This video shows the work completed thus far, over a 20 day period just before the Christmas break.

We will post regular updates here as work progresses.

What will the Sixth Form Centre mean for King's?

The new Sixth Form Centre will be distinctive and will serve to emphasise the importance of the final two years at King's.

It has huge potential to change the way our Sixth Formers study, providing many opportunities for collaborative working, formal and semi-formal academic experiences and discussions, all of which are crucial to developing intellectual thinkers.

Project Ecology

Everything from wildlife conservation and external lighting, to landfill use and materials has been considered, and over 95% of what was produced from the demolition phase of this project was recycled.

Sustainability and the move toward net zero have been of huge importance. Local contractors have been sought and appointed, and the procurement of materials, including packaging and the distance of travel to the site has been a crucial factor.

 

Opening in the Michaelmas Term 2022, our new Sixth Form Centre will accommodate a burgeoning programme of education and life skills. With the ambition of creating the best sixth form centre in the South West region, it has been designed by the pupils for the pupils.

The site is situated on the north side of the Chapel and will be modern, flexible, inspiring, technologically advanced, sympathetic to new learning strategies and anchored in sustainable energy principles.

 

This exciting £3million project will provide a very smart, and distinctively modern and entrepreneurial feel to the Sixth Form experience at King’s. It will house a social area, a large study area and six classrooms (to include the business studies and economics departments), break-out spaces and offices. 

With a build schedule of 50 weeks, the new Centre is due to be opened sometime early in the Michaelmas Term of 2022. Sadly, too late to benefit the current Upper Sixth (and our Headmaster!) but a wonderful prospect for all our other year groups.

 

The project has been made possible through the careful financial stewardship of our Council and our Director of Finances, Simon Worthy, and also through the generosity of several alumni and other supporters of the school.

There is still plenty of scope for alumni and parents to contribute and can do so in two ways. Either contact our Headmaster to discuss the project in more detail, or by clicking here to donate.

This is a truly exciting time for King's and underlines our present confidence as a school.
