Mathematics and Modern Foreign Languages block opened
Pupils, staff and governors watched as Headmaster David Derbyshire cut the ribbon and opened the Denstone College, Staffordshire, Maths and Languages block.
The Derbyshire building is a two storey, 12 classroom building
with smartboards and the latest
in classroom technology and furniture; an energy-ef cient, natural ventilation system, low- emission boilers and intelligent technology-controlled lighting, blinds and zoned heating. Pupils are now enjoying the state of the art  exible seating and desking and bene tting from the very latest in teaching technology.
This is the latest in a series of developments including the Adamson’s Sports Complex, the Threlfall Library and Tookey’s, the home of English and Philosophy
& Ethics. The College continues to invest in new and improved facilities, including a sixteen bed extension to girls’ boarding accommodation and a rolling programme of investment into other boarding areas. Boarding numbers at the College continue to rise gradually.
Mr Derbyshire recently announced his intention to retire in September 2018 after 20 very successful years at the helm, and the College Council has appointed Mr Miles Norris to take over the reins on his departure.

This month (September) represents a signi cant milestone in the life of the Sixth Form at Godolphin School, Wiltshire. Following a major redevelopment, it now boasts
a state-of-the-art, extensively provisioned study centre that places independent and focused academic work at the heart of Sixth Form life.
David Hallen, Head of Sixth Form, said: ‘The achievements of our previous Sixth Form students have been remarkable and we wanted
to provide the next generation of learners with the technology, environment and expertise that would allow them to aim even higher’.
The newly developed Jerred Study Centre provides a new seminar room, conference room and common room, each equipped with the latest technology, in
an environment that encourages students to fully engage with their studies outside of the classroom and mirrors the university experience.
