Project 150

Project 150 is an exciting and transformative development plan which will coincide with the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the founding of the College.

The first phase of the development, known as the Nugee Building, opened on 10 January 2017, with the maths and English departments on the first and second floors. The remaining parts of Phase 1, including the school shop, pavilion and ICT suites, are close to completion. Foundations and steelwork for the second phase, intended for completion in 2018, are now in place; this includes the sports hall, swimming pool and dining hall.

Project 150 will provide the school with three desperately needed new facilities:

  • a sports centre
  • an academic and IT centre
  • a new dining hall and social centre

The sports centre will include:

  • 42m x 24m hall with space for five badminton courts
  • a full-sized indoor hockey/football pitch
  • five indoor cricket nets
  • one tennis/netball/volleyball/ basketball court

A swimming pool, a fitness suite, a dance studio, squash courts and support facilities complete the centre. Linking Big School and the Sports Pavilion the teaching block will include 31 classrooms including two IT rooms, a reprographics centre and the school shop. The dining hall will be able to seat 450 in one sitting and will include a café and function rooms that can be used for internal and external events.
