Gretton's Makeover

Over the summer our wonderful facilities team, who have been working very hard alongside our superb team of staff, have grafted tirelessly to provide some exciting new spaces for our learners.

It has been the busiest summer holidays Gretton has ever seen, with workmen and staff scattered around both sites getting everything in place. Staff worked tirelessly last week making everything functional and looking beautiful in time for the start of school this week.

We are so excited for everyone to have the opportunity to view our new facilities in person, in the meantime we wanted to share some images with you of some of our changes.

Music and Drama are now in the Amadeus Performing Arts block (previously known as the Green Block) over at the Manor Farm Site and we are really looking forward to seeing you all over here (if we haven’t already).

We will soon be bringing you all news of our Christmas Panto (...oh yes we will!) including opportunities for how to get involved! WATCH THIS SPACE!

The music room is still based on our Manor Farm site, though it has now had a revamp and is situated in the Amadeus Performing Arts Hub, alongside Drama and Photography. Creating the perfect space for collaborating between the subjects.

Our outdoor space has had a majorly exciting new addition too! You may have seen some posts on our social media pages and website about our Artisan Play Equipment project which was completed over the holidays.

Well, what can we say, the students welcoming the opening of the Artisan Project with open arms is an understatement!

Mrs Brocklebank says: "I don't think I have looked over at the play structure once all week and seen it empty! Students have enjoyed climbing, hanging, swinging, imagining and risk assessing like never before!"
