STUDENTS of the Westgate School in Slough joined the head teacher and governors for a steel signing ceremony.

The event, which took place on Thursday, November 16 in Cippenham Lane, marked the conclusion of the school’s new extension having its steelwork completed, with the beams being signed by the school’s students and its builders.

The Westgate School is building a two storey extension to the existing science block, which will include a new multi-purpose hall and a new sixth form centre. Another new two-storey block, with dedicated art and media rooms, is also currently under construction.

As part of the general refurbishment of the school, three new maths classrooms are being created, along with a number of new parking spaces and cycle bays.

When the project is complete, Westgate will offer two additional forms of entry, making it a 1,200 secondary school for 11-16s.
