Canteen & Kitchen Refurbishment
We have been successful in securing substantial funding to expand the canteen and kitchen facilities, subject to regulatory approval. This means that we will hopefully be able to double the size of the dining area and the kitchen, improving both facilities accordingly. This will mean that we can improve the dining experience for students and be in a position to offer a broader menu, reflecting modern tastes and expectations. Students will be involved in the design of the canteen area and also the development of the menu.
As you can appreciate, this is a major undertaking and will involve some disruption. As the project has to be completed within a very tight time schedule, we are aiming to begin work soon after the May half-term. The first phase will involve work within the kitchens. This means that we will be buying-in hot meals from an outside supplier for the duration of the first phase. There will be no extra cost involved in this.
We would ask both students and parents to bear with us over the works. We will try and make the transition as smooth as possible, but I am sure there will be hiccups along the way. We will aim to learn from these and minimise any unanticipated disruption which happens. Nevertheless, this is an exciting development for the school and one which will bring benefits for all members of the school community.
