It was another momentous stage in the building of our fabulous new School Library and Sixth Form Centre yesterday as a Topping Out ceremony took place on the roof of the building.
Topping Out is an age-old construction tradition that takes place when the full height of the building has been reached and the framework is complete.
A small, socially-distanced group included the Head Master Mr Stuart McPherson, Abbot Luke plus representatives of Tim Ronalds Architects, W.Stirland Ltd and Synergy Construction. Mr McPherson thanked all those involved in the project before Abbot Luke blessed the building, all those who have worked on it and all who will work in it.
The building is due to open in Autumn Term 2021. It will include a new school library and a small auditorium for all pupils, and the Sixth Form Centre will provide seminar rooms, study and social spaces for our Sixth Form pupils. The centre is an extraordinary gift to the School from a former Worth student, Lord Spencer of Alresford (Butler House ’73).
