A MAJOR refurbishment of Leamington's historic all-girls school has been announced.

The Kingsley School, established 128 years ago and located in Beauchamp Avenue since 1922, will from the start of next year get a new £500,000 state-of-the-art sixth form centre, including a new gym, computer suite, science laboratories and improved classroom and common facilities.

It is the first phase of work which could include further development of the school's prep and senior buildings, where significant improvements to facilities have already been completed in recent years.

Headteacher Heather Owens said “It is a matter of great pride for the school that we have been able to maintain the warm and friendly feeling of a home afforded by our current buildings at the same time as moving with the times to provide a 21st century education and to prepare girls for life at university and beyond.

“Kingsley is entering another exciting phase in the development of the school and the improvements that are being made to the Sixth Form Centre will ensure our older students get the best learning experience possible.”

The Kingsley School is situated in a total of three Victorian buildings, which have been extended over the years to accommodate growing numbers of students and meet the needs of modern learning. Today it takes girls aged three through to 18.
