A special ribbon cutting ceremony took place where girls to the junior school were welcomed by its head, Ms Kate Bevan.
The fully-accessible site includes 14 new classrooms as well as additional room for sixth form classrooms and dedicated spaces for teaching music, art, science and computing. The new building also includes a performance hall and library.
NHEHS Junior School Head Kate Bevan said: “Experiential learning is central to our ethos, encouraging students to see, touch, feel, interact, and take their education off the page or screen. At NHEHS, our approach is not just about cultivating students; it’s about fostering well-rounded global citizens. And thanks to our new state-of-the-art building, we have the perfect home in which to support our girls’ passion for the environment.
GDST chief executive Cheryl Giovannoni added: “I would like to thank everyone involved in the construction of this new Junior School for their hard work and dedication. I am certain that this building will provide inspiring learning environments for our girls to build their own foundations to become changemakers of the future, and create a more equal world for all. Our investment in this space is testament to the GDST’s unwavering commitment to girls’ education, and the forward-looking ways in which we are fulfilling our mission to help girls to learn without limits, so that they can go on to lead lives without limits.”
