I am delighted to inform everyone that all permissions to place a permanent provision for the Reserve Forces and Cadet Association on the school site have been received from the Education Funding Agency. The cadets already rent our facilities in the evening but this will give them a permanent new home behind the tennis courts and next to the Playbox Theatre. They will have a separate entrance from the Stratford Road and this will also service the Playbox. Daytime visitors to the theatre will no longer be required to pass though the school grounds when this has been completed, hopefully by the end of this academic year. The buildings may provoke additional interest in the cadets and students may want to see for themselves what they can offer.
