Farmor's School students in Fairford settle into brand new sixth form area
STUDENTS at a Fairford school are ready to settle into their newly refurbished sixth form area as they return this week to start studying for their A-Levels.
The sixth form area at Farmor's school has been described as a 'hype of activity' over the summer holidays with the current building for Year 12 and 13 students undergoing a major redecoration.
Work will continue up until the end of the year as a brand new studying space is still under construction and members of staff say it could be ready by the time students return after the Christmas holidays.
"It's just fabulous," said head of sixth form, Emma White, describing the refurbished sixth form socialising area. "Members of Snape Construction started work early July and they, plus members of staff, have been working really hard.
"It'll be so nice for the students to come back to a new space after we've just had the best ever A-Level results. The accommodation is finally matching the achievement of students. They work so hard for their A-Levels so I really hope they like it."
Headteacher Matthew Evans said the old facilities were not suitable for the number of students.
"These new superb facilities will really help students relax and allow them to do even better in sixth form," he said.
The refurbished sixth form area has been given a whole new look with new floors, new paintwork and new furniture, all in bright colours which the students picked out themselves.
A new cafe area with microwaves, a vending machine and a Costa Coffee Express machine will also feature.
