Building a new Future

Progress Report 2013

A number of works projects are being advanced, some of which have funding from generous supporters of the college. These include:

  • Work on the Cavalry barracks and associated buildings in preparation for the introduction of the Atlantic pre-Diploma year in September 2014
  • A major refurbishment of the library, supported by a donation of £250,000 the installation of a lift within the castle
  • Improvements to The Great Hall and to student study space in the Castle, both of which have attracted some funding
  • Work in the Sosh area to improve recreational facilities for students. This too has been part-funded by a donor.

We are also progressing plans for a new purpose-built sports hall and gym, which is to be funded by a very generous donation. The preferred location allows us to improve an existing unsightly maintenance yard and to improve views from the castle gardens towards the existing Biomass Boiler and maintenance yard. The large volume of the sports hall is likely to be set at a level at which the roof would be no higher than the fencing of the existing tennis courts, allowing for natural screening from existing trees and for the planting of new tree species.
