Tettenhall College, the historic independent school for two-18 year olds, has seen a recent unprecedented rise in pupil numbers and is in the latter stages of completing redevelopment work.
Work is currently under way for a striking new sixth form centre, a modernised library, upgraded boarding houses and additional sporting facilities including new squash courts and multipurpose sports pitches.
The contemporary new sixth form centre at the heart of the school will provide the best of both worlds for pupils with a mezzanine ICT and study area and a brand new sixth form common room which is due to be completed by autumn 2017.
The school already boasts excellent sporting facilities including an on-site swimming pool and extensive sporting pitches.
These will be further enhanced with the addition of two multi-purpose games areas, for tennis, netball and football.
Due to be unveiled in the autumn term, the school’s squash courts have already been completely refurbished thanks to a former pupil’s generous legacy.
Graham Aston, a keen squash player and former Head Boy, left a £400,000 legacy to the school to develop the sport at the school, the courts will be officially opened on September 29 at a special VIP reception.
Headmaster David Williams said: “We are very pleased that work is well under way on these exciting redevelopments at Tettenhall College.
We are already proud of our educational offering to pupils and the proposed upgrades will strengthen this further.
“The work undertaken will blend the contemporary with the historic, which supports our drive to maintain traditional values while moving forward with the times.”
As part of the works, renovation of The Towers, one of Wolverhampton’s few Grade II* listed buildings, will also be undertaken.
The ‘Towers’ were added in 1866 by eccentric owner and inventor Colonel Thomas Thorneycroft, these days it houses the school’s theatre where the annual school musical rivals any West End production.
With a strong reputation for Performing Arts, this year’s show “Seussical the Musical” was a sell out for all four performances.
The audience were packed into the auditorium for the stunning spectacular which involved nearly every member of the Senior School be that behind the scenes
or on stage!
With the increasing popularity of this hidden gem in Tettenhall, the school’s open mornings on September 23 for senior school and November 17 for preparatory school, provide prospective pupils and their parents a fantastic opportunity to take a closer look.
