Nick Boles MP was at Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School today to officially open their new arts and drama block following a £1.2 million building project.
The creation of the new buildings, which also include extra classrooms, ICT suites and an extended sixth form common room and study area, was assisted by a £470,000 Education Funding Agency grant.
At the unveiling of a plaque to mark the opening, headteacher Graham Burks thanked Nick Boles for his help in securing the funds which enabled the building project to take place.
After a tour of the new premises, Mr Boles said: “It is fantastic, and I’m so pleased that Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School have taken advantage of becoming an academy to achieve this transformation in their science, arts and sixth form buildings.
“They are some of the best school buildings I have seen.”
Mr Burks added: “We are really delighted with the support that we have received from Nick ever since he became MP. He has always looked after us and his knowledge and advice has been a great support to this project.”
