Ground Breaking Ceremony 10 July 2017
The Governors of the Warwick Indpendent Schools Foundation, along with the Heads of the Schools, were delighted to welcome their pupils and guests for the Ground Breaking Ceremony on 10 July 2017.
A small girl with a large ceremonial spade marked a very special milestone in the life of King’s High, Warwick School, and Warwick Preparatory School. Millie, the youngest pupil in Warwick Preparatory School’s Reception class, made the first cut in the Ground Breaking ceremony on the site of the new King’s High, which is being built alongside Warwick School and Warwick Prep School. Alexandra, our new Head Girl, did the honours for King's. They were joined by Raphael, of Warwick Juniors, and Tom, new Head Boy of Warwick School. Together with the Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire, Tim Cox, Chairman of Foundation Governors, David Stevens, Warwick Independent Schools Foundation Secretary, Simon Jones, Head Master, Richard Nicholson and Warwick Head Master, Gus Lock, they completed the Ground Breaking.
Gus Lock welcomed ‘our sisters from King’s High’ to the site of their new home. Mr Nicholson described the vision behind Project One Campus, which sees a new state-of-the-art building for King’s High, and a new Sixth Form centre, to be shared with Warwick School. He said: ‘This brings for us all a school experience that is unique locally and, we believe, nationally: a model of how we celebrate a single sex teaching and learning environment with a rich co-educational co-curricular model. Truly ‘single sex plus’, a thoroughly 21st Century pathway for the best in education for girls and boys.’
