A NEW £1.9million state-of-the-art classroom block has been officially opened at Prince Henry’s High School.

The project, which took just over 12 months to complete, will house the school’s English and Modern Language departments along with 14 classrooms, after Prince Henry’s secured funding from the Education Finance Agency.

It has been named after the late Gordon Grove, who was a pupil at Prince Henry’s from 1949-56, and then returned to teach at the school from 1962 up until his retirement in 1994.

Headteacher, Dr Tony Evans, said “We are delighted to have this wonderful new building at the heart of the school.

“It provides a superb teaching and learning environment that will benefit staff and students for generations to come.

“We were very fortunate to secure the funding from the Education Finance Agency eighteen months ago.

“I would like to thank my colleagues and governors, our building consultant Richard Pill of PR Associates, and our contractor Arthur M Griffiths & Son, who all worked so hard to make this project a reality.”
