KING’S School is looking to raise around £700,000 for the proposed construction of a new sports hall on the school playing field in North Parade.

If given the green light the new indoor sports facility will have a floor space of 750 sq m and enable pupils and community groups to play sports all year round.

Headmaster Frank Hedley said the new facility would “enable the school to continue its focus on sporting excellence so that increasing numbers of boys can compete at county, national and international level”.

He added: “The proposed facility is necessary due to the expansion in student numbers in recent years and also to relieve pressure on the very limited existing sports facilities on the main Brook Street school site.”
