Sheldon School, Chippenham
The Learning and Skills Council agreed to provide £2.4 million to Sheldon School to fund a new Sixth Form Centre.
The new Sixth Form Centre has a large study area downstairs which will be equipped with laptops linked to a wireless network. In addition, there is an A level science laboratory and three classrooms for sixth form lessons on the ground floor, with a further four classrooms on the first floor.
The sixth form’s existing common room was extended and fully refurbished. The adjacent catering facilities were also extended and the area between the new and old facilities is now a paved plaza with attractive fabric canopies. Other recent projects have included a new Refectory and Kitchen upgrade following the theme of the Sixth Form centre and an extension to the Learning Support Centre.
Edmond Shipway have worked with Sheldon School for over 15 years, providing a multi-disciplinary service for new build, extensions and refurbishments helping to maintain the school’s OFSTED Outstanding rating.
