In partnership with our Building contractors, Morgan Sindall, we will be updating you on the progress of the school’s expansion works using the following website.

Name the New Building competition

Stage 1

All members of our school community were invited to take this opportunity of proposing names for the new building which will be situated at the front of the school. This was a chance to shape the future in a lasting way, so we were looking for serious ideas that draw upon the history of the school, the locality, the importance of learning, the school’s founders, local people who could/should be commemorated and/or any other items of local and lasting interest.

You will be aware, if you have seen the planning documents online, that the ground floor of the building will be our new reception and library. The first floor will hold four standard classrooms and one enlarged “dry-lab” for scientific, technical, digital, engineering and practical learning.

The opportunity to propose names has now ended.

Stage 2:

A panel of representatives from the school and local community met recently to discuss all the names that had been put forward. They have selected four names that they thought best represent Robert May’s school ethos and heritage.  You can now vote for what you consider to be the most suitable name for the new building. We are aiming to get away from just “the new block”!

Votes must be cast before 9.00am on Monday 4th June 2018 and the winning name will be the one with the largest share of the vote.  The winning name will be published before the end of the summer term 2018, and the proposer of the winning name will be invited to come to the school.  It is planned that the winner’s name will become part of a permanent installment in the library.

To cast your vote please use this voting form.
