NEW SIXTH FORM CENTRE
Sixth formers at Abingdon School were very appreciative of the impressive new Sixth Form Centre that opened its doors for the first time in September. The Sixth Form Centre occupies the ground floor of a new three-story building, Beech Court, that also houses a new library and art space.
Abingdon student, Howard Hawkes says, “It’s a perfect place to work or just be with friends. I’ve never really had a similar place before at school so it’s really welcome.”
Talking about the new facilities, the Headmaster Michael Windsor said: “The new centre is designed to mark the transition from Middle School to the Sixth Form where students have more independence, take on more responsibility for their own learning and enjoy a relationship with the school and staff that more closely resembles university education.”
Beech Court took 18 months to complete and is the latest in a phase of building development that began with the opening of a new Science Centre in 2015.
