Andy Cotton Opens New Geography Suite

The Park Community School has recently completed the relocation and refurbishment of a new Geography suite. The relocation has created new classrooms for Geography teaching and created a light and stimulating environment for this important area of the curriculum.  Students and staff have really appreciated the investment in the campus, not only has this created new Geography teaching areas but with other work completed over the summer English, Maths and Science has also gained additional teaching spaces.

Headteacher Gareth Roscoe commented "We are extremely pleased with the new facilities and our summer development works.  This builds on the work of previous years and the campus now helps to match the developments in teaching and learning undertaken over the past three years.  The students are really excited by the new areas for Geography, Photography and English.  Furthermore we have managed to add additional teaching capacity for Science and Maths as part of our wider development work.  We are grateful to Andy Cotton for coming in to help the students and school, mark this important development.

Paul Greenland, the Head of Geography added "Our students deserve the highest quality environments and experiences available and we’re really excited that we’re able to offer them that inside our new classrooms.  We’re hoping our students will be further inspired to explore and protect our world while pushing themselves to achieve more.  We’re especially grateful to Andy Cotton, a former Park student, who demonstrates these ideals through his global adventures as one of the world’s best big wave surfers.”

Anyone interested to see the new areas can come along to our open evening on Thursday 20th September from 5.45pm onwards.
