Construction of New Car Park

Published on 02/01/17

We have now completed all pre-start conditions and are ready to start work on the new car park adjacent to the top car park.

This is needed before the main contractor can begin demolition of the existing science block prior to starting work on the new science and technology building, and new workshop, which are the first buildings in the School’s master plan.

The plan for parking and pedestrian access during work on the new car park is as follows:

  • Work started on Monday 16 January for 12 weeks so should be complete by mid-April.
  • During this time part of the slip field will be under construction but the lower half will be available for parking. The plan below shows what is intended but it may take a few days to set up. Pedestrian routes are marked by white dots. Black and white zebra stripes on West Drive define a crossing point to the Mansion, Pre-Prep and Nursery and tennis courts direction from the lower slip field.
  • The path to the Portsmouth Road will be made up upon completion of the Slip Field Car Park in April.
  • The work includes a new, even and lit path from the top car park to the sports hall.

The plans are exciting and will improve parking and walking on site but there may be some disruption at times and we ask parents and visitors to bear with us while work is underway.
