Ground Broken on New State-of-the-Art 3G Rugby Pitch
A ground breaking ceremony took place on Thursday 27 September on Warwick School’s playing fields to mark the start of a state-of-the-art 3G rugby pitch.
William Kelley, Captain of the 1st XV, turned the first turf using the same ceremonial spade that was used for the Project One Campus ground breaking ceremony last year. He was supported by Dr Deneal Smith, Head Master, Mr Tom Pierce, Director of Rugby at Warwick School and from Warwick Junior School U11 rugby player Thomas Whorrod.
Dr Smith, Head Master said, “Thursday’s ground breaking marks the next chapter in Project One Campus for Warwick School. At this time of year we are benefitting from glorious grass pitches in excellent condition, but this top-quality, floodlit 3G surface will allow boys of all ages to continue playing rugby even in the muddy depths of mid-winter when the nights have drawn in. It will be an invaluable addition to our sporting facilities.”
Project One Campus sees the move of King’s High School to the Myton Road campus, joining Warwick Preparatory School and Warwick School on one spacious, green campus. The Foundation is unique in the Midlands, offering co-education for its pupils aged 3 to 7, and single-sex education from age 7 onwards. This offers the best of both worlds: teaching specifically tailored to their needs with extensive opportunities to collaborate outside the classroom.
