Groundbreaking at Highworth!

Highworth staff and students attended a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday 9 May to celebrate the beginning of the new Sports Hall project. The Headteacher, Mr Danielsen, dug the first shovel of earth to mark the start of this exciting new development for the school. He was keen to impress upon the staff and students that commitment to regular sporting activity is important for health but also to develop leadership skills of teamwork and resilience.

The event was attended by Vicki Wise, representing the school governors, who worked hard with the architects, Ingleton Wood, to secure the necessary funding. Ingleton Wood produced the contemporary design and they will be overseeing the project for the duration of the build. The school will benefit from a bespoke sporting venue with modern design features, such as thermowood exterior cladding, sprung floors, four courts and a terrace overlooking the school’s playing field.

The ceremony was hosted on-site by the Managing Director of Beardwell Construction, Duncan Clark, Project Manager, Stuart Drake and Contracts Manager, Paul Watling. A tour of the site included an explanation of the next stages of the project to ensure that disruption to the normal running of the school is minimised. 

The Head of Physical Education, Louise Cassey, said: “We are excited that our new Sports Hall will be ready for action in February 2019. This modern facility will give our students an excellent opportunity to train hard, practise skills and enjoy a wider range of recreational sporting activities.”
