Kings Langley School has launched a fundraising appeal to take the redevelopment of the Sixth Form centre to the next level.
The school has launched a ‘buy a brick’ initiative, inviting the community to donate to have their own mock brick, to help raise money for the centre.
As part of the donation, the mock bricks will be engraved with names and featured as a permanent art installation in the new centre.
Speaking to KingsNews, James Tubb, principal assistant headteacher and head of Sixth Form, said the new centre will open opportunities for the community as well as the school.
He said: “We’ve got an increase in interest in students coming to the Sixth Form. This year we’ve had a record number of applications to join Year 12.
“We are building a purpose-built sixth form block which we are hoping to have finished in July. We are trying to get interest from the local community, not just for the benefit of our school but for the wider use of the building for the community.”
Mr Tubb added that the school has invested funds in the new building and the initiative will help fund more exciting facilities.
He said: “It will help fund all the exciting stuff that will make us the first choice. It will help raise money for well-being and mental health facilities, as well as a Sixth Form study garden.
“We really do just want to put us into a league of our own.”
