Claremont High School has officially opened its cutting-edge sixth form centre, ushering in a new era of academic excellence and student comfort.
The purpose-built centre, designed with student input in mind, promises a dynamic environment that fosters both collaboration and individual focus.
The facility is expected to significantly enhance the learning experience for Claremont’s sixth form students. The centre features full air-conditioning, seamless connectivity, and a striking glass mezzanine floor at the entrance, making it a hub of innovation and comfort.
Students at Claremont High School in Harrow will now have the opportunity to work independently or engage in collaborative study sessions in a comfortable and stylish study area.
The sleek and contemporary design of the space is complemented by an adjoining café, complete with a breakfast bar and tables.
In response to student feedback, the school has provided a corridor leading to exclusive sixth-form toilets and a spacious Flex Room. Within the Flex Room, students seeking a calm and focused environment can utilise one of the 70 private study booths.
Additionally, the Head of Sixth Form and the Pastoral Lead have established their offices within the facility, offering students readily available advice and support.
Dr. Nicolaou, Head of the Sixth Form, highlighted the rationale behind the development, stating, “Students have asked, and we have listened! They really appreciate having their own spaces in which to study, eat, and socialise, yet they also have access to the staff and facilities in the rest of the school.”
Year 12 students, Pia Ramjee and Rishaan Hirani, are among the first to experience the new facility. Pia expressed her enthusiasm, saying, “I really like it, especially the new study area.” Rishaan shared her sentiment, praising the centre for its tranquillity and comfort, which he believes enhances his academic work.
