Sod Turning Ceremony for new teaching block at Medbury School
Medbury School has marked the beginning of its next exciting development, a new teaching and learning centre, with a turning of the sod ceremony.
Chairman of the Medbury School Trust Board David Hiatt said the new teaching block will ensure that Medbury’s facilities evolve with the requirements of a 21st century education. It will continue to allow the balance between traditional teaching spaces and adaptable learning spaces, that allow boys to work independently or collaboratively.
Headmaster Ian Macpherson added, “Within this new facility, every boy will have his own desk, as well as a range of the latest new innovations in classroom furniture such as collaborative tables, raised tables and kidney shaped desks with ‘write on’ surfaces.”
Medbury School caters for dayboys and boarders from Years 1 to 8 and, as it approaches its Centenary year, is experiencing significant demand for places for 2019 and beyond. Mr Macpherson attributes this demand to Medbury’s model of limited class sizes, and the Schools’ mission to unlock every boy’s potential through personalised learning programmes.
