Tring School is thrilled to announce that it is embarking on a major re-building project that will see the facilities match the school’s aspirations to go beyond outstanding. Some of the details are still to be decided but we anticipate several brand new buildings to replace those which have reached the end of their useful life. New facilities are likely to include:
- Design, technology and art block
- Dining room
- Catering kitchen
- Sixth form centre
- 25 classrooms
- Sports hall and changing rooms
Headteacher Sue Collings enthused “This is a fantastic moment in the history of Tring School. The learning and teaching are well on the way to being outstanding but we have been held back by some of our facilities which are decaying and no longer fit for purpose. This timely re-building of so much of the school is going to be absolutely fantastic for all of our students for years and years to come. We can’t wait to get into the detail of planning every building and every space so that the students and staff at last have the facilities that they deserve.”
In order to keep the school open and fully operational the project will be undertaken in a series of phases over the next few years. There will be absolutely no impact upon the quality of the students’ learning.
The building work will be paid for with money recently secured from the Government’s Priority School Building Programme as announced in February 2015.
