Our outstanding new development
The final part of the Quad Development – the Olivier Hall – was completed in the autumn which means our inspiring new facilities are now fully open at the heart of the School. At the end of last year we were delighted to announce the names that have been chosen for the buildings. These modern and bright learning spaces are specifically designed for the way young people learn today and are already bringing fresh vitality to an already dynamic intellectual culture.
Please watch this short film to see the new spaces we’ve created, and to find out their official names. Scroll to the bottom of the page for more information about the honoured individuals.
The Olivier Hall
Once we can make use of it, The Olivier Hall will enable the whole School Community to come together for performances, concerts and countless other occasions. It is a stunning new venue which places a strong sense of community right at the heart of the Quad and School.
The Christie Centre
Comprising of a suite of modern and flexible classroom and breakout study spaces, the elegant Oxley Library and the stunning collegiate-style Roe Reading Room with far-reaching views, the Christie Centre is a space where pupils can learn in a way that suits them, either in lively and robust discussion and collaboration, or thoughtful and quiet study. The architectural design has created a fluid learning environment. Teacher-led study spaces and areas where pupils will be working independently sit alongside each other, giving year groups more choice in how they approach their studies. Whether they need a quiet area for research, a breakout zone in which to discuss a project with their peers, a stimulating view from one of the individual study decks overlooking the Quad or the less formal workspace of the ground floor cafe, pupils will discover new opportunities to work together, think together and be together.
