This impressive new revamp which caters to the 405 students currently enrolled includes two new standalone classrooms with a universal access W.C, to accommodate the needs of all students, full Wi-Fi and top of the range equipment such as short throw projectors. A huge perk of Schulls’ extension is their new therapy room. This investment is crucial for the mental health and wellbeing of students, which is hugely important to the college. The school is now also universally accessible to pupils of all abilities with this new build ensuring all external doors are fully ramped.
