New Pre-Reception building granted approval


Stockport Grammar School is excited to announce that planning permission has been granted for the construction of new Pre-Reception facilities.

A brand new single storey Pre-Reception building will be 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 is due to commence in February 2020 and is due for completion by the start of the next school year.

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 Summer 2020.
