6th May 2021 — A new Sixth Form Learning Centre was officially opened on Wednesday 28th April at Bishop’s Stortford College by Pauline Mullender, Governor and Chair of the Education Committee at the College.

The building, which was the former home to several individual staff and department offices, was transformed over the Easter holidays by school interior design and installation specialists, TaskSpace.

The Learning Centre, the first of its kind at the College, provides a unique and dedicated space for Sixth Form students to work collectively or independently, hold team meetings and have 1:1 meetings with staff.

Complete with quiet study areas, a conference room, a well-equipped kitchenette and gallery of notable College alumni, the Sixth Form Learning Centre encompasses an environment which prepares students for life beyond the College.

Head of Sixth Form, Katie Banks, commented: "The Sixth Form Learning Centre is designed to mimic a modern undergraduate study space or work environment.

It provides an opportunity for students to collaborate on assignments or to hunker down in a quiet, calm place to get on with their A Level work and independent study.

"It is already being well used as the Upper Sixth prepare for their assessments."

Students can use the Sixth Form Learning Centre throughout the school day during their study periods, as well as after school.
