A NEW £1million humanities block has been unveiled at The Chase.
The new development, which was completed in the summer, provides seven new classrooms and office space, replacing old temporary classrooms.
Malvern MP Harriett Baldwin had the honour of cutting the ribbon last week and other invited guests included Mayor Julian Roskams, district council leader David Hughes and Coun Melanie Baker as well as governors and staff from the Geraldine Road school.
Headteacher Richard Jacobs spoke enthusiastically about the project which had sentimental significance for him personally, as the foundations were laid for the new building on the first day he was appointed to the post.
Mrs Baldwin said: “I was delighted to be invited to formally open this new classroom block.
“There is a lot of emphasis on the teaching of science subjects at the moment and with so many technology companies based in the area it is clear that this is an important task.
“But as a humanities graduate myself, I am delighted to see the other subjects also benefiting from investment and I was eager to thank all those who have worked so hard to bring this new block to fruition.
“The school saw some excellent exam results this summer and I hope that this will continue to be the case as more pupils get to study in shiny, new classrooms with the latest technology.”
