THE GREEN-LIGHT has been given to King’s High School’s relocation to a new £30 million campus with Warwick School and Warwick Preparatory School, following the granting of planning permission by Warwick District Council.
‘Project One Campus’ will see a new King’s High school building, that will include a shared sixth form centre with Warwick School, enhanced sports facilities, with 4G and all-weather pitches, and a new music centre, shared between King’s High and its sister school, Warwick Preparatory School.
King’s High head Richard Nicholson said: “This is a very exciting opportunity, both for our current and future pupils, which we believe will offer unrivalled educational opportunities, not only through top-class facilities and education provision, but through a model for our girls of ‘The Best of Both Worlds’ – the educational advantages of single-sex learning environments, whilst sharing social and co-curricular pursuits with Warwick School.’
The project is out to tender and work will start over the summer.
It is planned for the new the buildings to open in 2019 and 2020.
