New Sixth Form and Pre-Reception buildings
SGS is committed to creating and developing the perfect environment for our pupils to enjoy learning.
The new Sixth Form facilities are now open and in February we started to build a new Pre-Reception building. This follows recent redevelopment in the Junior School.
The doors to the new Sixth Form social and study spaces have swung open to the delight of Upper and Lower Sixth students.
There are still some final touches to be added before the work is 100% complete, but students have been making great use of the new large, modern and well-equipped areas.
The stunning glass roof creates a bright and vibrant atmosphere, allowing a great sense of community to flourish, and there is ample space for students to quietly get on with their studies.
The last bits of the construction work are being completed over the next couple of weeks with everything due to be ready upon the students’ return to Stockport Grammar after half-term.
In February we started construction of a new Pre-Reception building.
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 striking living green roof and utilise eco-friendly technology.
The new Pre-Reception building will allow us to continue to provide an exceptionally 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 outdoor play and learning spaces for children across the Junior School age range.
Work is due for completion in Autumn 2020.
The Junior School building has undergone a number of impressive redevelopments and improvements.
There is an entirely new roof for the main building and, thanks to an extension to the front of the building, the changing rooms have doubled in size and there is a new canopy attached to the side of the Junior School Hall.
The Hall – which hosts assemblies, visiting speakers, authors, theatre companies and indoor sports and activities such as dance and yoga – has also been refurbished.
The Quad, which a number of classrooms look out on, has had a makeover – supported by a donation by the Stopfordian Parents’ Association. It has been landscaped with artificial lawns that will provide an all-year-round play surface for pupils.
