Major refurbishment works at Guildford County School have been completed on time ready for the start of the autumn term.
The upper two floors of the refurbished three storey building provide an expanded and improved Sixth Form centre for the school. A dedicated entrance from the front of the campus leads to a new foyer and reception area, 10 sixth form teaching/seminar rooms, group study rooms, sixth form library and careers area, staff offices and a new sixth form common room with snack bar.
The ground floor has been remodelled to create a suite of Design and Technology teaching spaces – graphics and textiles studios, resistant materials workshops, CADCAM studio, machinery workshop, offices and stores.
New windows, ceilings, lighting, and stylish, bright new flooring make the building feel contemporary, while new services and IT have brought the building’s technology right up to date.
The refurbishment is the second phase of the masterplan which LAA developed for the school and was funded by a successful EFA funding bid in 2013.
The refurbished facilities allow the school to offer the full design technology and expanded sixth form curriculum, as well as releasing teaching accommodation elsewhere on the school campus.
