Prince William School has opened a modern new maths block as part of an ongoing programme of extensive refurbishment works throughout the school.
The two-storey building was transformed from the school’s out-dated science block into a fully equipped specialist maths building, comprising nine classrooms, all equipped with the latest interactive technology, an intervention room and offices.
The completion of the building’s refurbishment also means the school was able to do away with the temporary mobile classrooms on site, which were removed over half-term. The project is the latest phase of a multi-million-pound programme of improvement works at Prince William School funded by Northamptonshire County Council.
The first phase saw the opening of a state-of-the-art science block in 2019 named the Francis Crick Science Building, boasting 14 well-equipped laboratories.
Headteacher Elizabeth Dormor said: “The ongoing improvement works at our school demonstrate they we are committed to investing in our teaching and learning facilities in order to give our students the very best opportunities to succeed. “The new maths block provides our staff with the very best teaching environment and I hope it will inspire both staff and students to push themselves to achieve the very best they can.”
Cllr Fiona Baker, Northamptonshire County Council cabinet member for children, families and education, said: “I’m delighted that this new maths block has opened, delivering top notch facilities for the pupils at Prince William School. “The project is part of wider improvements funded by the county council both at the school and across the wider county, ensuring that we continue to improve the life chances for Northamptonshire children.”
The next phase of the improvement works at Prince William School will include a new, larger sports hall and theatre, together with additional teaching areas for dance and drama.
