"The Sports MasterPlan gives us a rare opportunity to resource a modern, thoughtful vision of sport as part of an education which informs our pupils’ lives long after they have left.” Sarah Kerr-Dineen
The new facilities will support sport at a top competitive level whilst catering for a multitude of sports and leisure activities at all levels. This multifaceted, multifunctional sports development will offer maximum flexibility in the provision of sport and physical well-being activities, whilst enhancing the experience of all users, including visitors.
Dual use has been factored into the development to ensure that there will be year round community and sports club access to the new facilities. The plans include a new sports centre which will accommodate a new fifty metre swimming pool, an eight court hall offering adaptable playing space for a range of sports, as well as the opportunity for whole school assemblies through use of retractable bleacher seating, a separate fitness suite with seventy stations, a dedicated dance studio and three further multipurpose studios.
The Sports MasterPlan also includes a new athletics track, eight additional tennis courts, two new AstroTurfs and six additional netball courts; all complementing the award-winning JM Mills Cricket Pavilion which opened in 2015.
