Was invited yesterday to see the new building at Chetham's School in Manchester. As you can see, it is very modern and absolutely huge! Enjoyed a fine lunchtime concert (thank you, Hayley, for showing me round) and had some very useful meetings with staff. A very interesting day.
Sunley House, one of our girls' boarding houses, is currently undergoing refurbishment. It is due to be completed in October, and at the moment we expect all the girls and staff to be able to move back in at half term.
I toured the works last week, and the final result is going to be excellent. The contractors have done a very good job indeed, and I am sure that the Sunley girls will be delighted when they move back in. The photo shows the outside as it was a couple of days ago.
