Inspiring minds and investing in the future

Encouraging a lifelong passion for knowledge, discovery and adventure

We have ambitious plans to invest in new facilities at the School over the next few years. These plans encompass a new professionally equipped Drama Centre, an extended facility for Sixth Form, significantly increased classroom space, along with improved areas across the whole School for outdoor sport and recreation.

This exciting new building phase will represent a significant investment and we would be very grateful for your support to help us to provide an inspiring environment within which pupils can explore and enjoy the creative, academic, sporting and all-round opportunities at KES.

New Drama Centre

The new two-storey building, scheduled to open this Autumn, will be professionally equipped and will incorporate a large vaulted studio plus two new additional teaching spaces, bringing teaching and rehearsal environments under one roof. With your support we would like to provide enhancements including: 

  • LED lighting rig with dimmers and control desk
  • Full sound system to include microphones, speakers, control unit and recording desk
  • Wide-throw projector and screen for performances and teaching
  • Flexible seating for up to 80 people
  • Portable staging of adjustable height

Extended Sixth Form Centre

For the Autumn Term of 2019 we plan to extend the Holbeche Centre, towards the existing Drama studio, to create a spacious and enhanced environment designed specifically for young adults. The new centre will incorporate additional flexible space for individual and group work, as well as enhanced break-out space and a cafe, all served by modern IT capability.

New classroom development

We are planning a significant addition of up to six new teaching spaces beyond the Holbeche Centre to open in Autumn 2019. This is likely to accommodate a subject department. We will keep you updated as plans unfold.

New sports surfaces

Senior School
To support the success of KES netball, we are planning to resurface the existing netball courts and install LED lighting to extend the use of these surfaces for after-school training and activities.

Junior School
At the Junior School, we are planning to create an all-weather surface to provide an inspiring setting for sports training and play. We will also be resurfacing the existing 'poly'.

Pre-Prep and Nursery School
At the Pre-Prep, we are plannning to create an all-weather surface at the bottom of our grounds, to provide additional play space and an enhanced setting for curriculum sport.

Thank you for your consideration.
