Brigidine School unveils plans to expand school offering

After many months of waiting for approval of a planning application, Brigidine School in Windsor is pleased and excited to reveal that permission has been granted for change of use of part first and second floor rooms in its Queensmead main school building. The approved planning will enable the building of new and modern student accommodation with associated bathrooms and common rooms.

It is envisaged that once renovations have been completed, senior girls will be able to board at the school, giving local and international students alike, the opportunity to experience living away from home with a degree of responsibility and independence. The renovations will also see a number of age appropriate common rooms being built; giving students defined areas to study in outside of the classroom setting alongside comfortable areas to socialise in with their peers.

Joint heads, Simon Larter – Head of Education and Dawn Fleming – Head of Business Affairs, both commented, “We are delighted to be able to share our news with the wider community. The approved planning application enables us to really drive forward with our plans and future direction for the school, as we will be able to offer our students a complete educational service with boarding facilities. All students should have the opportunities and experiences of quality teaching in a happy and safe environment. Some students will want to further extend their educational experience by boarding away from home in preparation for their next life step, be it going to university or working away from home. Our commitment to enable this can be seen by the huge investments we are planning to make," commented Mr Larter.

Renovation works are expected to commence in 2018, paving the way for future planned investments. With an eye firmly focused on the future, the good news arrives as an early Christmas present to the school.

One student secured A grades in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics and another student was one of only 800 students nationally to gain a grade A in German.
