Whenever visitors come to the school they often comment on the standard of facilities on offer. However, as a school it is important to look to the future and where we can develop further.
We have a current rolling programme to ensure that the sports facilities across the school are kept up to date. In the recent past, we have invested in a new Pavillion (2006), resurfacing of the courts (2007), new floodlighting (2009) and significant upgrading of the pitches (2010).
As part of this, a new indoor 6-lane 25m Swimming Pool will adjoin our existing Sports Hall and will enable all girls to become more confident swimmers, in addition to allowing our swimming teams to practice and host fixtures ‘at home’. Girls will have the benefit of using the pool in the evenings and at weekends throughout the year - it will be a wonderful place to relax and have fun. The plans include magnificent panoramic windows.
As an important part of the local community, we are also hoping to make these facilities available to other local schools, clubs, parents and staff.

In 2015, we opened the brand new library and languages centre equipped with multi media centre, art gallery, study areas, language classrooms and rooms for one-to-one teaching.
This inspirational building is used by every member of the school community and offers fiction, non-fiction, specialist subject areas and a careers library. The library is staffed Ms Kennedy, Head Librarian and Mr Moran, Deputy Librarian who are on hand to help the older girls with research and the younger girls with book choices and revision advice.
