Work begins on new £3million classrooms at Wycliffe Prep School
Work has begun on a new £3million state-of-the-art Learning Centre at Wycliffe Prep School in Stonehouse.
Headteacher Adrian Palmer was on site for the 'ground-breaking' event which marked the start of building work for the new facility for Year 7 and Year 8 pupils.
The impressive new university-style, centre will feature eight spacious classes, a well-equipped common room and three staff offices.
High tech teaching resources for pupils will include 64-inch touchscreen boards, iPads, and revolutionary new Apple iDesks.
The construction of the two-storey building will follow the latest environmental and construction standards. Mrs Gillian Camm, chairman of Governors at Wycliffe, said: “The Prep School is flourishing with happy children who are stretched, challenged and achieve beyond their expectations. “This new development is part of our vision to build on our successes, continue inspiring our pupils and lead the way in the region for teaching and learning.”
The completed Learning Centre will be unveiled in late August 2014, ready for staff and pupils to move in at the beginning of the 2014 autumn term.
“We look forward to seeing this exciting new phase in Wycliffe Prep’s development take shape over the next 12 months,” said Mr Palmer
“The pupils will have an outstanding place to work, learn and enjoy during the crucial years of their prep school education.”
