New Pre-Reception building for Autumn 2020


Stockport Grammar School is excited that the construction of a new purpose-built Pre-Reception building is well underway for completion in Autumn 2020.

A brand new single storey Pre-Reception building is being built within the grounds of the Junior School.

The development will replace the current Pre-Reception classroom and will have a stunning living green roof and utilise eco-friendly technology.

Stockport Grammar’s Junior School Headmaster, Mr Tim Wheeler said: “This is very exciting news for children across the Junior School. Our new Pre-Reception building will allow us to continue to provide a very high standard of both education and care for our youngest children in a modern, purpose built facility.

“In addition, the project brings an opportunity to develop and extend our outdoor play and learning spaces for children across the age range.”

Work commenced in February 2020 and is due for completion in Autumn 2020.

Other building developments

The construction of new Pre-Reception facilities follows on from a number of other building developments at SGS.

The Junior School building has undergone a number of impressive redevelopments and improvements including an entirely new roof for the main building, an extension to the front of the building, a new canopy, a refurbished Hall and a newly landscaped Quad area.

Additionally, great progress is being made in the development of the Sixth Form facilities, which will see a large, modern and well-equipped social space created – complete with a stylish glass roof. Existing facilities will also be developed to provide enhanced study spaces for the students and contribute to SGS’s excellent academic record. Work is due to be completed by September 2020.
