The start of the 2015 new school year at Culford began in spectacular fashion, with the opening of the new £2.2 million landmark library building. Pupils, alumni, teachers and staff gathered outside the completed building to watch Old Culfordian and generous benefactor to the project, Professor Harry Watson, cut the ribbon and declare the library officially open.
Headmaster Julian Johnson-Munday was keen to promote the library as more than just a storage space for literature. He stressed that, “This stunning new building offers an inviting, light and open space for our pupils to go and study and a place where they can fulfil their potential as independent learners.”
Exclusive Facilities for Sixth Formers
The Sixth Form have made great use of their exclusive mezzanine floor with coffee facilities, quiet study areas, and wi-fi. Having this area reserved exclusively for Sixth Formers has meant that they are able to study and revise in a quiet area, or use the sofas and coffee making facilities to relax or work on shared projects with friends.
The 80-seat lecture theatre has hosted several talks as part of the Scholars' Programme, including one by Professor Simon Horobin, Oxford fellow and guest speaker. The foyer has been the location of Sixth Form events including National Poetry Day Open Mic and the Sixth Form Choices Forum.
