The exciting first phase of the MCS Development Plan – the new Sixth Form Centre – broke ground in early July 2016.
The building, which stands between the New Building and Colin Sanders Building, is due to be completed in time for the second half of Michaelmas Term 2017. It will incorporate key design features to provide a stylish and contemporary social and study complex, sensitively integrated into the school environment. A formal opening is expected to take place in early 2018.
With an overall floor area of 1,650m2, the new Centre will add significantly to the Sixth Form experience for students, at one of the most formative times in their lives. Social space will be the key feature of the four-storey building, which will also include a cafeteria, study space and offices.
Hoarding to protect the building – and MCS pupils, parents and staff – is decorated with artwork completed by our Art Scholars. It shows the ‘A-Z of MCS’ and includes useful information – and quirky titbits – about the school’s history and traditions.
You can find our more information about the new Centre and the fundraising campaign here. The Master recently sent a letter outlining a delay to the completion of the project - this can be found here.
We are pleased to announce that the fundraising campaign has already surpassed the £1.3 million mark due to very generous parents, OWs and friends. This will dramatically help to reduce the school’s dependence on a loan for the £7.3 million needed. If you would like to be a part of this ground-breaking addition by making a donation, please see information here or visit our OWs and Friends page.
