  What an incredibly active four months it’s been on the Tring School site! The last time we wrote an article the foundations for the building had just finished and we were waiting for the first steel sections to arrive. Four months on and the steel framework is now complete. In addition to this, the roof is in place, the stairwells installed, the cement cladding for the walls has been attached and the window frames are in place. The construction is moving incredibly quickly and it remains on schedule for us to move in at the beginning of January 2022. During this time we have had to keep the school operational, of course, and dealing with Covid in the best ways that we could. On Monday 8th March we were delighted to welcome back all our students. This was a very challenging week because we had to test all the students 3 times within 11 days. This was a mammoth effort but all the staff involved, as well as the students themselves were absolutely brilliant. Since then the school has settled back into a purposeful rhythm and the students are delighted to be back and enjoying their learning.  The next few months of the construction process will see the walls and window installation completed and the roof go on the sports hall. On the exterior bricklaying commences whilst inside B+K will be working on the “first fix”. The rate of progress is so exciting and even awe inspiring to see and we can’t wait to watch the developments over the spring and then the summer.     Rod Gibberd April 2021

The new structure takes shape

For what seems like a long time, the rebuild of Tring School has been all but a secret to passers by on Mortimer Hill. The phased demolition of the original structure provided a privacy screen, to what will be the largest building project Tring has seen in decades. After months of preparation, the construction firm, Bowmer + Kirkland began forming the giant steel structure that will eventually become the new school. Hidden from view for the first few months, it started to peek through in early January and has crept up and along with each week passing. What began as a humble 4-pin structure, has now become a 3-storey zig-zag building that is already starting to resemble the architects plans we saw last year. With the most recent addition being the new sports hall added last week, the next step will be to run facilities throughout the building before adding walls, roof and windows. The demolition of the old school was symbolic for many, with a large proportion of the waste material being ground into rubble for the base of the new structure. Whilst it was emotional to see the existing blocks disappear, the arrival of the new structure is exciting, and symblolises what will hopefully be a sign of the greater things to come in 2021. With the return of the students in early March, we can't wait to settle back into a routine and admire the amazing changes happening in front of our eyes. Rod Gibberd, the schools' Business Director says; "At the moment the new build project is on time and on schedule to be completed late in 2021 with the new buildings coming into operation at the very start of 2022. After this we still have to demolish most of the remaining old buildings (excluding the Beloe and Desborough blocks) and complete the parking areas and landscaping.  2021 is going to be a very exciting time for Tring School. Our new buildings and sports facilities will be very “state of the art” and we can’t wait to see them start to take shape and then be completed before our eyes."
