Etheridge Hall, the new teaching building for Wycliffe Prepraratory School, was opened last week by Chair of Council, Brigadier Robin Bacon and named in honour of life President Paul Etheridge; both Old Wycliffians.
It was a rewarding day for the design team; seeing the popularity of the new building with pupils, staff and visitors to the school, first hand.
“I love everything about it,” said Year 8 Prefect Matt Cole. “It’s modern and light and I especially like our new common room. It has an outside seating area if you want some quiet and it is nice to meet your friends and make toast.”
“Etheridge Hall has a very grown-up feel to it.
“The separate, grown-up space is so beneficial in helping students make the transition from Prep to Senior. We give them more responsibility and independence, and provide those life skills which will help them succeed.” Mrs Ginny Jackson, Deputy Head.
Mr Etheridge also paid compliment to the building and described the team’s contribution as outstanding.
