Construction of Woldingham’s fantastic new Sixth Form Centre and Library started in July 2023 and is progressing well.
Work commenced in the summer break with ground works to clear the site, formerly a car park and play area. The play area has been relocated to the opposite side of the drive ahead of students return to school for the autumn term.
All the foundation pilings are in place ready for the next stage of construction and it’s been good to see walls starting to be built.
Mr Abbott, Head of Sixth Form, talked about the exciting opportunities in store to Year 11 parents and students on A Level options evening on 11 October - they’ll be the first year group to become Lower Sixth students in the new Sixth Form Centre.
Sunninghill, Woldingham’s construction partner, used the opportunity of the October half-term to maintain the momentum of the project.
Construction continues at pace despite the wet autumn weather. The structure of the new building started to emerge from above the hoarding.
At the end of November, work began on the second floor and services, including electricity and drainage, were installed.
Tours for students are being planned to go ‘behind the hoarding’ so they can see for themselves what’s in store for them next year.
Check back here for regular updates as work progresses. Photos are being added to the gallery below alongside visuals of the new Sixth Form Centre and Library, which will open in autumn 2024.
