A new sixth form centre has officially opened at Seaford Head School.
Staff and students were joined by BBC News journalist, Natalie Graham, newly elected MP Maria Caulfield and former students to officially open the centre.
The £2million centre boasts state-of-the-art science labs, two ICT suites fitted with iMac computers and a sixth form only social area with a café. The new centre will accommodate up to 350 students.
The site has disabled access and facilities thanks to the Keith Baker Trust and a reliable fast IT link thanks to The Southover Manor Trust. Students will also be able to apply for a travel bursary thanks to the generous legacy left by former Head of Sixth Form Jerry Adams.
Helen Key, Acting Head Teacher at Seaford Head School, said: “I am delighted to see this new centre open. The new facilities will provide a wonderful learning environment for our young adults as well as a social area for them to enjoy.
“I am also very grateful to the Keith Baker Trust, Southover Manor Trust and the generosity of Jerry Adams. Their donations and support have given a huge boost to the project and facilities available.”
The Seaford Head Sixth Form Centre has the advantage of being part of a 11-16 school, and at the same time benefiting from its own distinctive ethos and site.
It offers a wide choice of advanced (level 3) subjects, including French, Spanish, music technology and philosophy and ethics, all of which lead to a full range of university courses.
