Bishop’s Stortford College has opened a new sixth form learning centre.
The building, which was the former home to several individual staff and department offices, was transformed by school interior design and installation specialists, TaskSpace.
The centre, which is the first of its kind at the Hertfordshire independent school, provides a dedicated space for sixth form students to work collectively or independently, hold team meetings and have one-to-one meetings with staff.
It was officially opened on 28 April at Bishop’s Stortford College by Pauline Mullender, governor and chair of the education committee at the school.
Complete with study areas, a conference room, kitchenette and gallery of notable alumni, the school said the centre encompasses an environment which prepares students for life beyond the school.
Head of sixth form Katie Banks said: “The sixth form learning centre is designed to mimic a modern undergraduate study space or work environment. It provides an opportunity for students to collaborate on assignments or to hunker down in a quiet, calm place to get on with their A-level work and independent study. It is already being well used as the upper sixth prepare for their assessments.”
Students can use the centre throughout the school day during their study periods, as well as after school.
