A CHE­SHAM school has re­vealed its plans for a £6mil­lion re­vamp that it be­lieves will ben­e­fit the whole com­mu­nity.

Che­sham Prepara­tory School has an­nounced its plans to im­prove and ex­pand the school’s cur­rent fa­cil­i­ties and ex­ist­ing build­ings.

Pro­pos­als in­clude a new state of the art swimming pool, new class­rooms as well as a new din­ing hall.

The plans rep­re­sent an op­por­tu­nity for the school to in­crease its cur­rent ed­u­ca­tional of­fer­ings for both ex­ist­ing and fu­ture pupils.

The school, in Two Dells Lane, Or­chard Leigh, is de­ter­mined to en­sure that the pro­pos­als pro­vide the great­est pos­si­ble ben­e­fit to the lo­cal com­mu­nity, which would con­trib­ute a £6mil­lion in­vest­ment into Che­sham.

The school is also putting for­ward an op­tion to open up ac­cess to the sports fa­cil­i­ties to the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

In ad­di­tion, pro­pos­als in­clude cre­ation of two ve­hi­cle en­trances to the the new the school as well as up to 55 new car park­ing spa­ces within the ex­ist­ing school grounds.

It is an­tic­i­pated this will both ease con­ges­tion along Two Dells Lane and also cre­ate a safer pedes­trian en­vi­ron­ment within the school grounds.

Che­sham Prepara­tory School’s head­teacher Mike Davies said: “Our plans to ex­pand the fa­cil­i­ties at Che­sham Prepara­tory School will cre­ate a va­ri­ety of new sport­ing and arts fa­cil­i­ties, com­ple­ment­ing the ex­ist­ing ed­u­ca­tional of­fer and ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties at the school.

“We welcome the op­por­tu­nity to dis­cuss our plans with the lo­cal com­mu­nity, and look for­ward to meet­ing res­i­dents to present our plans and lis­ten to their feed­back on our pro­pos­als.”

Che­sham Prepara­tory School, which was at­tended by Stephen Fry, is host­ing two public ex­hi­bi­tions to dis­play the plans on Fri­day (Sep 25) and Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 9 be­tween 4.30pm and 7pm.
