We are delighted to announce that after many months of delay, construction of the 'new' Shepstone House will begin this week.

Mr Craig MacKenzie, Chairman of the Governing Body was on site this morning with Mr Ken Hackland (left) and Mr Chris Luman (right) to symbolically turn the earth and thereby 'open' the site.

We look forward to updating you with pictures of the progress of the building.

Friday saw the long-awaited Music Centre officially being opened.

Director of Music, Mr Simon Stickells welcomed everyone and thanked all those that had made the new centre possible, in particular Mr Ken Hackland

Mr Luman then welcomed ex-headmaster Mr Keith Olivier to open the new centre. In his address, Keith Olivier emphasised how pleased he was with the new addition as he had always had a soft spot for music. This was initially kindled by Mr Willy Hudson, headmaster of the school when he was a schoolboy. Later, as a new teacher at College, Headmaster Mr Fuller had reinforced the importance of music in the school.

He was pleased to see that Mrs Mary Ann Hartley's legacy was being continued.

We are delighted with the new centre and wish all our budding musicians many happy hours of making music!
