The King’s School in Gloucester is investing £2.5 million to redevelop its 13th century sixth form building, ready for the start of the next academic year.
Gloucester-based Roberts Limbrick Architects has designed the new facility to create bright, open spaces, separate learning areas and a new café, while restoring and preserving the historic features of the historic Grade II listed building.
The redevelopment will also make more space for the growing number of pupils at The King’s School. Work is due to begin in April and be completed before the start of the new school year in September 2020, with building, surveying and structural engineering all being undertaken by Gloucestershire companies.
Headmaster David Morton said: ‘Based in the city centre and with excellent academic results, our Sixth Form is becoming an increasingly popular choice for students throughout Gloucestershire.
‘This project is a very exciting chapter in the school’s long history in Gloucester, which will also see us offering more bursaries and scholarships, and underlines our commitment to ensuring our students receive a first class education in state of the art facilities.’
