Capital Projects

King’s High believes in continuous development to improve our facilities and enhance the education we offer. We have completed a number of striking major capital projects to take our school into the 21st century:

Phase 1 - opened in September 2006 by Dame Judi Dench, DBE  
 - Sixth Form Centre which unites our lower and upper Sixth Forms, creating a transitional environment for learning, private study and leisure.

- ICT suite: a classroom with 30 dedicated IT workstations housing state-of-the-art computing facilities for cross-curricular use.

- New classrooms: six new interactive classrooms with dedicated specialist facilities and sophisticated technology.

- Sports and fitness facilities: three match-size, floodlit courts and a modern fitness suite.

Phase 2 - opened in Autumn 2009 by Miss Catherine Bott 
The St. Nicholas building has been transformed to include a music school, complete with performance and rehearsal rooms for music and drama, IT/Music Technology Suite,classrooms, offices and practice rooms, as well as a Drama and Dance studio and enhanced Art and Design Technology facilities.

Carlo Lubrano (Executive Chef), Miss Leith, Mrs Surber and Mrs MarshallThe opening of the restaurant marked the final phase of the school’s major Capital Development Plan. The old, much-loved school dining room has been transformed into a light and airy, bistro-style restaurant. It is not only the dining room itself which was transformed – the food also took on a Mediterranean feel to it thanks to our Executive Chef, Mr Carlo Lubrano. The use of fresh and seasonal ingredients was demonstrated in a celebratory menu enjoyed by Miss Leith and invited guests at the Official Opening. Headmistress Mrs Elizabeth Surber commented, “We are so excited about our new restaurant which provides our girls with a beautiful and relaxing space where they can enjoy their food. I couldn’t agree more with the quotation from Elsa Schiaparelli with which our Chairman, Mrs Jane Marshall, concluded her welcome today: ‘Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship.’
