Earlier this month, students and staff from Hazel Grove High School (HGHS) had the opportunity to take part in a steel signing ceremony as the final stages of work begin, in the redevelopment of Hazel Grove Sixth Form (HGSF).

Construction began in May 2022 to ensure the Sixth Form centre would be ready for a new cohort of students in September 2023.

Director of Sixth Form, Mrs Lambert, and Head of School, Mr Stewart, joined groups of current HGHS KS4 students as they went on a tour of the site led by contractors from Rosslee Construction.

After touring the site, they had the opportunity to sign the steel frames of the building and become part of its history.

The newly redeveloped Sixth Form centre will offer a welcoming and professional environment, featuring a contemporary design over two floors.

Students will have access to dedicated Sixth Form spaces including full classrooms, ICT resources, Library, Refectory, Auditorium and Independent Study facilities.

Mrs Lambert said:

“We’ve been so excited to show some students around our new building this morning and we can’t wait to open our doors in September 2023.”
