I'm writing to tell you a little more about what we've been up to this year, and to let you know that we have a few places left for January 2017!
This year has seen the first steps taken in our multi-million pound programme of investment – due to roll out over the next two years. We're dedicated to ensuring our pupils receive the highest quality education - our £15 million development plan demonstrates our commitment to providing, and continuing to provide, outstanding education.
The Master Plan
We are pleased to say that our Master Plan programme of investment is really taking shape, and it is attracting parents who want to ensure they are placing their faith in a school that’s investing in their child, now – and for future years to come.
It’s been a busy few years. In late 2014, we started work on Mason House – a brand new £4.1 million project – and since it opened in Jan 2016, the stunning building has supported a growing boarding community, as well as creating space for additional library, study and classroom spaces. Moving boarders to the new purpose-built facilities enabled us to reconfigure the main building, spending £750k on modernising boarding facilities, classrooms and break-out spaces across the school.
Prep School investment
And over at our Prep school, Ranby House – a refurbished library, new ICT suite, upgraded tennis courts and pre-prep classroom has created exciting spaces for our younger learners.
Based on the outskirts of Retford and set in 60 acres of stunning grounds, our Prep School, Ranby House continues to thrive, with a rich mixture of traditional school features, such as the main house, available to the children alongside state-of-the-art modern facilities and teaching resources.
