New sixth form learning centre for Bishop's Stortford College
Bishop's Stortford College's new sixth form learning centre has been officially opened by governor and chair of its education committee Pauline Mullender.
The building, formerly lived in by staff and used as offices, was transformed over the Easter holidays by school interior design and installation specialists TaskSpace.
The centre, the first of its kind at the Maze Green Road fee-paying school, provides a dedicated space for sixth-form students to work collectively or independently, hold team meetings and have one-to-one meetings with staff.
It features quiet study areas, a conference room, a well-equipped kitchenette and a gallery of notable college alumni.
Head of sixth form Katie Banks said: "The learning centre is designed to mimic a modern undergraduate study space or work environment. It provides an opportunity for students to collaborate on assignments or to hunker down in a quiet, calm place to get on with their A-level work and independent study. It's already being well used as the Upper Sixth prepare for their assessments."
Students can use the centre throughout the school day during study periods as well as after school.
